A store manager has celebrated 25 years of service with Marks and Spencer.

She attended the event with her husband Ian before watching a West End theatre show.

Mrs Mack, who lives in Woodham Ferrers, started her career with Marks and Spencer in Basildon as a sales advisor before managing numerous stores across the region.
