Primark is nearly ready to open and we've been given a sneak preview of what's in store.

For more than 10 years, people have speculated about Primark coming to Carlisle and on Thursday the wait will finally be over.

Staff gave the News & Star an exclusive tour around the spacious store, showing off the clothes, accessories and home goods.

Everything is neatly folded and lined up, which probably won't last very long once the doors open at 10am and the madness begins.

The store is in The Lanes shopping centre.
