WATCH: Lidl store demolished with a digger during Storm Emma reopens

The Lidl supermarket store raided during Storm Emma reopened this morning almost six-months after it was damaged by a gang of thieves who used a digger to break in.

The German-supermarket chain completely demolished the building as a result and has reopened at the same site in a building 70pc bigger than the original.

Floor space has increased from 997m2 to 1698m2 with additional tills, wider shopping aisles and additional space for employees.

A number of new features are included on the site including free-to-use electric car charging points as well as 50pc more parking spaces.
