Plans were announced today for a re-design of the Marks and Spencer store in Darlington.

The work, which will include a cafe and in-store bakery, will begin in late March and is scheduled for completion this summer.

Store manager, Elaine Smith, said: "We are delighted to be bringing cutting-edge design to our store by creating a fresh, new environment for our customers. This redevelopment affirms our continued commitment to Darlington."
