The Force was strong in a Colne supermarket which shares its postcode with the name of a droid in the new Star Wars film.

Staff at the town’s Co-op store celebrated their “BB8” connection by inviting a colourful cast of characters to march down the aisles to coincide with the release of the DVD.

Emma Cornish, manager of the store on Market Street, said: “Although the Co-op has a food store in every postcode area in the UK, we are the only one with such a clear Star Wars connection.

“We decided to use the Force and move some of the chocolates so the Galaxy is far, far away.

“However, most of the bars like Mars and Milky Way will remain in their usual place.”
