Dozens of supermarket bargain hunters stood patiently in line at the launch of a new Lidl store in Cambridgeshire.
Pictures show eager shoppers outside the Cambridge Retail Park shop which is one of the four launched today (February 20) - making 800 stores across the UK.
Up to 40 jobs have been created in the region as a result of the store opening and employees will benefit from Lidl's £9.30 hourly wage.
Christian Härtnagel, Lidl GB chief executive officer, said: "We're excited to have reached this milestone of 800 stores.
"It simply means that we're bringing affordable, high quality food to even more households across Britain.
