Every Stilton needs its port

A LONG-STANDING Morpeth specialist shop is seeking a licence to expand its range of goods.

The Cheese Shop in Oldgate has applied for a licence to sell wine, port and local beer as part of hampers and gift boxes.

Northumberland County Council will determine the bid, but the move has already been supported by Morpeth town councillors.

Mayor Mark Horton said: “You have got to be able to buy port if you are buying Stilton.”
