Supermarket giant Tesco has confirmed that it does not intend to close any of its stores in Peterborough and the surrounding area.

The struggling retailer has just publised a list of 43 stores across the country that it plans to shut with the loss of 2,000 job as it seeks to cut costs.

But Tesco has announced that it will not open planned stores in Whittlesey and Chatteris after falling profits.

The company has shelved plans for a store in Station Road, Whittlesey, while a £22 million store in Chatteris will not open despite being completed.
