A new branch of Costa Coffee, the High Street coffee shop, is due to open shortly in Mapperley, Nottingham, and advertised for eight new staff to run it in December.

Head office staff were amazed to find 1,701 people applying for the 3 full-time and 5 part-time positions.

The recent spate of redundancies from retail chains including Jessops, HMV, Blockbuster and Comet have hit the High Street hard, although today's unemployment figures showed another fall to 2.5 million.
