Malpas High Street shop Londis has come to the rescue of local residents after offering to deliver to anybody unable to leave the house due to poor weather.

The so called 'Beast form the East', Storm Emma has seen temperatures drop across the UK, causing snow and ice to envelop the country.

Lucy Owen, who's family run the Londis in Malpas was proud of the scheme.

She said: "It's a thing we have always done, but because of the weather we promoted it a bit more online, and it's gathered a lot of positive attention.

"We will deliver quite far, to Coddington and Wrexham. We have a van and Nigel or myself do the driving.

"There are lot of old people homes and apartments in Malpas though, and we will deliver on foot if need be."
