Last year Southwark's planning committee gave the green light to proposals by King's College London to knock down of a row of historic shops, offices and warehouses in Borough High Street and replace them with a new low-cost hotel and shops.

In September we revealed that the new hotel will be part of Whitbread's Premier Inn chain.

Now Tesco has applied for an alcohol licence for a new Tesco Express convenience store as part of the same development.

The consultation period on Tesco's application runs until 5 December.
