Tesco Express to open on site of former trouble spot The Angel pub, Sutton

A supermarket giant has confirmed it plans to open its seventh branch in the borough later this year.

Tesco will open an Express shop on the site of the once-troubled The Angel pub in Angel Hill, Sutton, late in the summer, the chain has said.

The supermarket firm has owned the pub since 2011 but a fire not long after it bought the site delayed its plans.

When the shop opens it will be Sutton's seventh Tesco on top of branches in Worcester Park, Brighton Road, Malden Road, North Cheam, Cheam and Wallington.

The Angel was shut down by Sutton magistrates for selling alcohol to children in 2011 and had been linked to drug dealing gangs.

The pub had also been sanctioned for making too much noise and failing to control patrons as they left.

And Tesco have left it undeveloped since 2011 looking like a s**t house with red and blue boarding up.We the resisdents having to put up with this, with already having yellow lines painted down Angel hill so we cant even park outside our own houses!! And the council say it has nothing to do with Tescos? We never wanted the store there in the first place and they was supposed to develope with 1 year, i bet it still is not done this time next year!!!
