AN on-line campaign has been launched to save a local pub amid fears it could be turned into a supermarket.

Wrenthorpe residents claim Tesco is looking to turn the New Wheel public house on Wrenthorpe Road into one of its Express stores.

Regulars have now created a website and hope people will sign their petition to try and prevent the switch as they say a planning application is imminent.

The move could also force TBH Hairdressing For Men, which is based on the land, to find a new premises.

Punch Taverns has confirmed the pub could be sold as one of several options.
