A supermarket's petrol filling station is being dug up as work continues to improve the forecourt.

Tesco Superstore in Mill Wood Drive, Warndon Villages, Worcester closed its petrol filling station on May 6 while it undergoes 'improvements' with work now well underway.

The latest photos show a large hole has been dug in the centre of the forecourt and a metal structure has now been added. The canopy has already been removed but the shop itself is still there.

A sign on the chainlink fence warns: "Danger, deep excavation. Keep clear."

According to a sign outside the petrol station, it is scheduled to reopen on Friday, July 26.

A Tesco spokesperson said: “The petrol filling station at our Worcester Warndon Superstore will be temporarily closed for refurbishment from Tuesday, May 7.

"We apologise for the inconvenience and look forward to welcoming customers back after the works are completed.”

The nearest Tesco petrol station during the closure will be the one in St Peters Drive.
