REDDITCH'S MP has praised a businesswoman as 'an example to young mothers' in the town.

Karen Lumley was speaking today (Friday) at the opening of a new vintage shop on Unicorn Hill, above the Rasoi restaurant, which is the brainchild of Emma Sutor.

"I have known Emma for many years and she is an example of what the Government wants to see, somebody making their own way in life," Mrs Lumley said.

"She has bought up two young girls on her own and managed to earn a living without depending on the state and she is an example to young mothers in Redditch."

The shop includes vintage clothing for men and women as well as a wide range of accessories.

Ms Sutor said: "I am delighted to have been able to open a new business in my hometown and hope it will get the backing of residents as it is something new for the town.

"I'd like to say a big thank you to Karen Lumley for taking time out of her busy schedule to open the shop and for her continued support."
