The Tesco superstore at Harford Bridge has reopened today as the chaos caused by Storm Doris calms down.

A spokesperson for the supermarket said the closure was due to high winds causing tiles to fall from the roof.

The store reopened at 8am on Friday and should remain open as usual for the rest of the day.

Customers will only be able to use one entrance to the Tesco as the other has been blocked off for health and safety reasons.
