Councillors have turned down a request to buy a bus shelter for a supermarket.

Wisbech Town Council was asked to use section 106 money to install a bus shelter outside the Tesco store in Cromwell Road.

But members turned down the request at a meeting.

The £10,000 cost for the shelter was also considered too high.

Leader David Oliver said: “I propose we don’t pursue this as I think it will be a substantial cost to the council over the years and it should have been delivered when the development was put in place.”
