AN offer to buy a former car boot sale site near the M5 has been accepted, says an estate agent.

The field, near the Ketch roundabout on the outskirts of Worcester, had a £3million asking price in an online advert posted by property agents Fisher German.

However, a spokesman for the agents said: “An offer has been accepted but the sale is yet to complete therefore I am unable to say who the purchaser is unfortunately.”

The site, which is passed by Herefordshire drivers heading to the motorway network at M5 junction 7,  is due to be developed into 81 homes as part of the south Worcester ‘urban extension.’

Seven Capital, which submitted a planning application on behalf of the landlord, was granted outline planning permission for the site in 2017.

Car boot sales took place on the field for 14 days every year, mainly on Sundays and bank holidays.
