Crowds arrived at the new Primark store opening in Carlisle this morning, with some shoppers having queued to get inside for over an hour.

The budget clothing shop opened its doors at 10.00am, with more than 60 people ready and waiting outside.

The retailer will create 150 jobs and has opened in to the Lanes Shopping Centre, taking over the former British Home Stores site.
