The city is set to lose its branch of newsagents WH Smith after the company announced it was leaving the Ridings Shopping Centre.

A sign displayed in the store window says it will close on Wednesday, June 18, and customers should use the next nearest WH Smith in Market Place, Pontefract.

WH Smith is vacating the Ridings unit to make way for an expansion by neighbouring Primark, which is increasing the size of its store by 40 per cent.
