A SUPERSTORE legal battle has been thrown out of the Court of Appeal.

A senior judge has today, November 21, thrown out the East of England Co-operative Society's challenge against a rival store being built in Mannningtree.

The Co-op claimed Tendring Council made a host of errors in granting the new shop's planning permission and called for a judicial review.

This was turned down and Sir David Keene's decision in London today paves the way for the new tesco development, at a former industrial site in Station Road, to go ahead.
