A new Starbucks drive-thru has opened in Stevenage today, and customers are being encouraged to try out the freebies on offer in store today.

The new drive-thru has opened on Gunnels Wood Road, creating 14 new jobs in the community.

One of Stevenage's mental health charities - MIND - joined the opening day party to cut the ceremonial ribbon at 8am this morning.

But, if you'd rather pop in than 'drive-thru', the store will be offering coffee tastings and sharing vouchers for customers to enjoy free beverages throughout today.
