Supermarket Lidl was rumoured to be opening a new shop on the outskirts of the town, but a spokesperson has put a stop to this theory.

Despite the denial, there is still hope a Lidl will be opened in Wellington soon, as it has been marked as a preferred area, but a location hasn't yet been found.

The spokesperson said: "Wellington is very much an area of interest to us, however we have not yet identified a suitable site."
