Former football star Peter Jackson unveiled the new-look Tesco supermarket in Brighouse.

Brighouse born Mr Jackson, whose previous clubs include Halifax Town, said he was a regular customer of the store which is stocking his new book about his life story.

Work on the refurbished store took six weeks to complete and it now has an F&F clothing section, a scan-as-you-shop facility and pizza counter.

Store manager Chris O’Brien said the changes had received positive feedback from shoppers and 2,000 were using the scanning option every week.
