Hundreds turned out for the opening of H&M in Welwyn Garden City


Hundreds of shoppers turned out for the opening of the new Welwyn Garden City H&M store.

A giant queue of people stretched all the way from the store down to Boots.

Spectators also gathered on the first floor to look down and watch all the excitement.

A countdown to the new Howard Centre store then took place just before 11am when eager shoppers were finally allowed inside.

Those who queued before 11am were given a 25% discount.
