Around 14 jobs are set to be created when Sports Direct arrives in Thetford.

The sports retailer will be opening a new store at the Forest Retail Park later this month.

It will offer brands in football, golf, running and fashion, including Nike and Adidas.

It will open in the unit which was formally occupied by Brantano - the shoe retailer closed earlier this year after going into administration.
