WORK is taking place ahead of the opening of a new tanning salon.

The new beauty salon will be the latest addition to Dalton's high street.

Scaffolding is currently in place on the front of the business, which is due to open this year.

Called The Tanning Salon, it will take the place of the former Poole Townsend Estate Agents building at 66 Market Street.

The unit's interior is currently empty but signs says it will start trading before the end of the year.

Plans for the salon, set to create four new jobs, were approved by councillors in June.
