PLANS for a multi-million- pound Waitrose have taken a fresh twist after nearby Muslims who objected to it selling wine lodged a legal challenge.

The chairman of the Central Scotland Islamic Centre, which is next to the planned superstore in Stirling, says alcohol sales in such close proximity to a mosque would be "an insult to the Islamic faith".

Last month, Stirling Council approved the application but now, in a letter submitted to the council, the Islamic Centre says: "We are considering legal action against Stirling Council's decision to grant planning permission for the Waitrose application at Burghmuir - We are of the view that due process was not carried out - We are considering judicial review of this decision."
