A supermarket in a Norfolk village has announced it will be replaced by another food store.

The Co-operative convenience store in Bradwell is set to close but will be reopened as a Morrisons although no date for the change has been confirmed yet.

A spokesman for the Central England Co-operative confirmed its store in Burgh Road had been sold.

The spokesman said: "The society has been working for several months on various proposals for the Bradwell store and chose this option to ensure that employment for colleagues would be retained.

"Like other retailers, we are constantly adapting to retail challenges at a local level, please be assured this decision was not taken lightly and is necessary to protect the long-term future and growth of the society as a whole."

"They think it will provide a more extensive selection which can only be a positive."

Earlier this month residents in the village voiced concerns about a mystery smell at the Tesco Express store in Beccles Road.
