Hundreds of shoppers took advantage of pre-Christmas deals at Gunwharf Quays at the Portsmouth shopping centre’s first Black Friday event.

Dozens of shops have exclusive offers on for just one day, with this weekend expected to be the busiest of the year.

‘This weekend will always be the busiest but I think Black Friday is really going to boost it,’ said Colin Wilding, centre director.

Queues built outside outlet stores including Marks and Spencer, Ralph Lauren and Jack Wills before they opened this morning.
