AS a mother of two, like many families within St Neots and Eynesbury, it was of great shock to me to hear that yet again St Neots falls victim to another store moving to Huntingdon.

Like many, we rely on Iceland for their selection of products and value for money when budgeting our food shopping.

Then we hear it is closing to become a Marks & Spencer food store, which is more expensive and would not get much custom, especially when you have Waitrose round the corner.

With the loss of our JobCentre and now Iceland pushing more people to travel to Huntingdon to do their shopping - including low-income families already finding it hard to travel on a weekly basis to sign on - what is happening to St Neots, supposedly the biggest town in Cambridgeshire?
