McDonald's says it hopes to open its Welshpool branch in "early summer".

The fast food chain was given the green light to open a store in the town last year, and now says work is progressing well on the restaurant near to the Buttington roundabout.

It has started advertising for jobs within the new eaterie, and has now provided this latest update on when it expects the doors to open.

A McDonald's spokesman said: “Work on this site is progressing well.

"We are hoping to welcome customers to our new restaurant in Welshpool towards the beginning of summer”
