    Elderly driver I am betting! more over 80s on the road than ever before and no retesting!! We urgently need it! Imagine if that was someones child!

    As for waitrose couldnt blame them if they pulled out of wellington the locals keep damaging their store.

    Waitrose, please come and build a store in Taunton, we promise not to burn it down or drive into it!!

    They should of built a full size store in Taunton all along.

    Wellington gets a lot of business from the outskirts as a lot of people can't afford to shop there, it was always a bit posh for wellington.

    Since when does a town have to be posh to get a Waitrose - Taunton isn't any better than Wellington.

    Anyway if your going on them lines look why is there one in Weston??

    How do you know when you live in a posh town, is it when you disappear up your own bum or is it when you can choose where to shop ............. Lets see Taunton has Asda, TWO lidls, and rumoured to be getting an Aldi. Wow I must move to Taunton so I can brag about living in a posh town, anyone from Roman Road or the circles wanna swap houses

    roman road isnt that bad these days its priorswood or most of wellington, especially oakenground were no one has tv licence or pays their bills! rockwell green the locals try and rob their chippy!
