It might have been battering down with heavy rain but feelings were running high in Cinderford today as residents marched through the town centre in support of Asda's plans to build a supermarket there.
The supermarket giant wants to rival the Co-op in the town - but that store doesn't like the idea and is challenging a planning decision to allow Asda's development.
Residents - led by campaigners Adrian Lane and Amanda Watkins - braved miserable rain to don costumes and carry placards supporting Asda.
Their march took them past the Co-op store.
Mr Lane said: "It was nice to see so many people here despite the weather. It just shows the strength of feeling on this."
