And the supermarket firm has also confirmed that the Morpeth area is among the locations it is examining.

It is looking for freehold town centre or edge-of-centre sites suitable for development across the UK and each site should be around 1.5 acres and able to accommodate a 20,000 sq ft store with around 100 parking spaces, ideally on a prominent main road and with good visibility and access.

Ciaran Aldridge, national property director at Aldi UK, said: “We have been investing in Britain for more than 30 years now, but we know that there are still areas that either do not have an Aldi at all – or that need another store to meet customer demand.”
