HUNDREDS of shoppers queued from 5am today as East Lancashire went sales crazy.

Three hundred people were outside the Next store, in Victoria Court, Blackburn, ready for its 6am opening.

Sisters Debbie Kennedy, 35, of White Ash Lane, Oswaldtwistle and Kate Cowgill, 32, of Hawthorne Avenue, Oswaldtwistle, and their cousin Julie Miller, 32, of Aspen Fold, Oswaldtwistle, spent £320 between them after getting through the doors just before 7am.

Debbie said: "This is the first time we've ever come down to these sales."
