But the in-store cafe at Scarborough's Sainsbury's store looks set to stay open as a programme of national closures looms.

A total of 67 cafes will remain open while the company reviews its dining operations, including the store in Scarborough's Falsgrave Road.

The store at Monk's Cross, near York, will also keep its cafe.
