A new drive-thru Costa Coffee restaurant will be built at a service station on the M5.

Sedgemoor District Council has approved the application to build a new 990-square-metre facility at the southbound Sedgemoor Service station between Weston and Burnham.

Roadchef Motorways, who submitted the application, said it will create four new full-time jobs and three part-time positions once completed.

The drive-thru will be open from 5.30am to 10pm seven days a week.

The coffee shop will be built on the existing site and will include a waiting bay, kerbs and shrubbery in the area.

There is no official opening date for the shop yet but, in its decision, Sedgemoor has told the developers to complete drainage work before building begins.

Costa Coffee will join a McDonalds, Cornish Bakery, WHSmith and Shell Garage on the site.
