Plans to create a business website for Epworth have stalled despite a trader agreeing to stump up cash to pay for the scheme.

Owner of NE1 Clothing in town, Mike Harm, pictured, said he had already paid for the site and it was ready to go.

But he added it had moved no further as other traders were unwilling to contribute to it.

“All I want is to generate interest in the town and attract people here,” he said .
