STOURPORT town councillors tonight voted in favour of a controversial bid by Tesco to build a new store at the former Carpets of Worth factory site.

Only two councillors opposed the outline planning application while nine voted in favour.

Conservative councillor, David Little, said he objected because the impact on the flow of traffic at the Mitton Street/Severn Road junction would be "unacceptable".
