James Clarke, manager of the branch, said: “We’ve had a fantastic response since we launched our recruitment drive in King’s Cross, with ten applicants for every vacancy.

“We are really encouraged by the calibre of applications we’ve received, especially from young people in the area.

“The station serves as one of Britain’s major railway routes to the north-east and Scotland, and we look forward to a successful future at King’s Cross.”

The new shop will be the first Waitrose to open within a railways tation.
