'We want Asda in Cinderford' say protest marchers
It might have been battering down with heavy rain but feelings were running high in Cinderford today as residents marched through the town centre in support of Asda's plans to build a supermarket there.
The supermarket giant wants to rival the Co-op in the town - but that store doesn't like the idea and is challenging a planning decision to allow Asda's development.
Residents - led by campaigners Adrian Lane and Amanda Watkins - braved miserable rain to don costumes and carry placards supporting Asda.
Their march took them past the Co-op store.
