AN Abbeydale woman has spilt the beans about a budding business on the back of a motorised tricycle.

Dawn Corrigan, of Easemore Road, will be taking to the streets of Redditch to sell less costly Italian coffees, cappucinos and other winter warmers.

Mrs Corrigan said a visit to London, where mobile coffee shops ran a "roaring trade", inspired her to start up mobile business The Coffee Bean.

She said: "I spotted a gap in the market, a need for a cheaper, more accessible coffee shop for people on the move.

"Not everybody wants to spend a great amount of money on a cup of coffee and my limited overheads mean I can keep costs down."

Mrs Corrigan said the business would be ideal for use at public functions.

She added: "The beauty of this is I can follow business wherever it goes - and bring a bit of Italy to Redditch."
