CONTROVERSIAL plans for a new Tesco superstore in Huddersfield will have to go to a public inquiry.
The multi-million pound scheme, backed by Kirklees Council, has now been "called in" by Government minister Eric Pickles.

The Government move follows a campaign by Huddersfield MP Barry Sheerman, who was opposed to the scheme on the site of the town's Sports Centre.
Council chiefs are pinning hopes of a new Sports Centre on land at Springwood on the Tesco deal.
