TWO famous faces competed in a trolley dash this weekend as they opened a North-East store.

Coronation Street's Fred Elliot - played by John Savident - and Emmerdale's Jack Sugden - Clive Hornby in real life - were invited to attend the opening of the B&M Bargain Store, at the Dundas Shopping Centre, in Middlesbrough.

As well as cutting the ribbon to open the shop, the pair took part in a modern day War of the Roses as Lancashire took on Yorkshire in a trolley dash.

The shop, which is open six days a week, sells a variety of food, electricals and toys.
