Ikea shoppers can now collect their purchases from a mobile pick-up point in the Tesco car park on London Road in Stevenage.

With the nearest Ikea store to Stevenage more than 30 miles away, in Milton Keynes, the news is being welcomed by shoppers.

All you need to do is select 'click and collect' when placing your online Ikea order, select a Tesco store and book a delivery slot.

There are two collection windows available per day, depending on the location.

Collection vehicles will be parked in signposted areas in the Tesco car park, with operatives there to hand the orders out.

The service, currently available at 68 Tesco locations across the country, is free for orders over £100, and £5 for all other orders.
