A TRAVEL agent shop in Taunton which closed when Thomas Cook collapsed has re-opened.

Hays Travel has taken over the business in Fore Street.

The shop was among 555 Thomas Cook outlets that closed in September.

Independent travel agent Hays Travel stepped in last month to buy the shops from the Official Receiver.

Hays has already re-opened a number of shops across the country and the Taunton one is up and running again today (Tuesday).
