Pictures showing how a new North East Primark store will look have been shared, as the fashion brand suggests an opening date for the shop.

Shoppers have had to contain their excitement since finding out that Primark will be coming to Teesside Park - with the future of the arrival store seen as a big 'coup' for the North East and Teesside.

Primark has been granted planning permission to extend the former Mothercare unit, ready for a 2024 opening.

In new plans, the dimensions of the store can be seen in an artist's impression, which shows the shop frontage and a walkway into the car park of Teesside Park.

Plans for a pedestrianised area with a "high quality, usable urban realm" have been "tweaked" to accommodate Primark.

British Land says a public space called The Spark will have spaces for shoppers to "meet and dwell" rather than "just pass through".

Despite the excitement of Primark, other plans drawn up by park owner British Land have shown several other units as 'under offer'.

According to the plans, baby store Mamas and Papas could be about to relocate from its current home to a new unit, while another shop moves into its old premises.

British Land's map shows Mamas and Papas, which has traded at the retail park for years, will move into the former Superdry unit along the same stretch.

Teesside Park owner British Land has not confirmed which brand or brands might be moving into the unit.

A spokesperson said: "We’ll update further on new retailers coming to Teesside Park when we can, but there’s nothing more we can share at this stage.

They added: "We look forward to sharing updates when we’re able to."
