CASH has been earmarked for a few stores in East London's run-down Roman Road Market who want to spruce up their shop front.

Town Hall bosses have been given £200,000 to put into a regeneration kitty to tackle the market's decline.

The shopping mile in Bow has a high number of empty properties compared to other East End shopping centres.

So Tower Hamlets council has chosen the stretch leading up to Grove Road for improvements.

Shop owners who want a 'makeover' for their premises are being invited to apply for grants from project coordinator at the council.
