The Sainsbury's store in North Walsham has confirmed it will continue to provide a cashback facility to its shoppers.

The move was welcomed by north Norfolk MP Norman Lamb, who had written to Sainsbury's chief executive Mike Coupe, after frustrated residents who depended on the service after the recent closures of Barclays, Natwest and HSBC, raised the issue.

Mr Lamb said: 'I was really pleased to learn Sainsbury's took on board the concerns I raised in my letter to them.
