Tesco stores in our region will not face the axe, it has been confirmed.

The supermarket giants announced earlier this month that 43 stories would close across Britain because of fall in profits.

Although all stores have been saved in the Mansfield and Ashfield area, the closest being Raymouth Lane Tesco Express in Worksop

In total, 18 Express, 12 Metro, seven superstores and six Homeplus stores are shutting their doors, with the loss of 2,000 jobs.

The move follows two successive years of falling sales and profits, and a shock accounting scandal, which saw the chain overstate its profits by some £263m.

Earlier this month Tesco said that the new store planned for Shirebrook had been shelved in the wake of the profit announcement.
