The new Co-op petrol station and supermarket at Necton opened first thing this morning.

The store, which has created 25 jobs, opened at 6am this morning.

Early customers seemed happy with the new facility. One said: "It's good to have another petrol station on this stretch of the A47 offering competition on n prices."

The 24-hour petrol station, on the corner of the A47 with Tuns Road, sells unleaded petrol, diesel and Super unleaded petrol and diesel fuel, and includes a jet wash, air and water. There are electric-car charging points on site.

Customer car parking and toilets are also available, with the food store – which is about 2,500 sq. ft – serving Costa coffee and having an in-store bakery alongside its focus on fresh, healthy foods, meal ideas, hot food, sandwiches, award-winning wines and essentials.

A drive-thru Costa Coffee is due to open on the same site next month. https://www.lynnnews.co.uk/news/costa-confirms-when-it-plans-to-open-new-drive-thru-at-necton-9073904/
