NEW shops are set to open in a town this June.

A council meeting at Havant Borough Council was told that the expansion of Solent Retail Park in Havant should be completed by early summer.

Developer Hargreaves has already demolished buildings, including the Pizza Hut restaurant, and cleared the area to make way for construction.

The retailers were not revealed at the meeting, but it is believed that Marks & Spencer Simply Food will be trading from one of the units.
