A new "vaping" store has opened in Whitehaven.

VPZ opened the shop today, bringing with it a £50,000 investment in the town and creating five new jobs.

Director Doug Mutter said: “We are excited to be opening the doors of our new VPZ store in Whitehaven as part of our growth plans across the UK.

“At a time when many businesses are exiting high streets across the country, we are committed to creating jobs and investing in communities throughout the UK like we are doing in Whitehaven."
