Tesco plan to split opinion

THE Huntsman pub in Haydock has certainly become something of an eyesore.

And, since it closed down a couple of years ago, it has become something of a haven for vandals.

So it’s proposed transformation into something positive for the community will be welcomed by many - especially as 20 jobs are set to be created locally.

But there will also no doubt be a few eyebrows raised about the supermarket giant behind the plans.

There is already a big Tesco store off Clipsley Lane in Haydock.

Many will be asking whether there is really any need for another Tesco store just half a mile away?
