John Lewis has quashed false rumours that it is opening an outlet in Haverhill following the appearance of a fake story that claimed the retailer was looking to do so.

The story appeared on a page convincingly designed to look as though it originated from the BBC News website and was being circulated via a link on individual Facebook accounts.

Upon investigation it soon transpired that the page was not real and none of the links on it worked.

A John Lewis spokeswoman said: “We can confirm we have no plans to open in Haverhill.”
