Mr Olesiski, who registered as a director of Jaff Mini Market earlier this month, has recently applied to Somerset Council for the grant of a premises licence.

He is looking to win permission to sell alcohol for consumption off the premises between the opening hours of 8am and 11pm seven days a week.

Anyone opposed to the licence can make representations to Somerset Council on the 'object to a licence application' section on the local authority's website or by email to enquiries@somersewestandtaunton.goy.uk by Monday, December 18.
