Members of Burnham's RNLI helped to officially open the long-awaited B&M store, which has been described as a 'positive' addition to the town.

The former Morrisons store, in Pier Street, shut down in November last year and had been unoccupied since.

Despite a number of delays, after disputes with Sedgemoor District Council, the store has now officially opened.

Burnham mayor Michael Clarke was also in attendance at the grand opening, alongside the RNLI’s official mascot Stormy Stan.

The RNLI volunteers have also been handed £250 worth of B&M vouchers as a thank you for their hard work.

Cllr Clarke, said: “I’m pleased to see the store open and relieved that something is being done with this vacant site, with more than 60 jobs being created.”
