Alan Halsall, who plays Tyrone Dobbs in the TV soap, did the honours at the new branch of the Midcounties Co-op Travel on The Parade.

Natalie Turner Head of Branches at Midcounties said: “Our new branch is a great opportunity to serve the local community.
“We moved our headquarters to Warwick so the area is important to us and opening in Leamington will help to grow our links here. We are excited about welcoming local people and new members and giving them a wider choice and independent advice when it comes to booking their holidays.”
