WORK is under way to convert the former JJB sports store, in East Street, Darlington, into a branch of Sports Direct. Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley’s firm bought 20 JJB branches after it went into administration. No one from Sports Direct was available for comment and it is unclear what the development means for its store in the town’s Cornmill Shopping Centre.

RECORD SHOW: Guiness World Records, the global authority on record-breaking achievement, is bringing its show Officially Amazing Science Live to Darlington Civic Theatre, on Thursday, March 28, at 7pm. Tickets cost £15 and £17. To book, call 01325-486555 or visit darlingtonarts.co.uk
