A NATIONAL clothing chain is set to move into the Tyne Valley in the coming months.

Seasalt Cornwall, which has stores across the UK including a presence in Fenwick and John Lewis in Newcastle, revealed via its Twitter account that it was to open a store in Hexham in March.

The tweet, which advertised a job vacancy for a part-time sales advisor, was posted on Friday but has since been deleted.

The chain's website has vacancies for seven posts at the Hexham site, including a store manager position.

A spokeswoman from Seasalt said more details would be released in due course.
