A motorway service area (MSA) on the A1(M) in North Yorkshire has been sold to Moto Hospitality in a deal brokered by Colliers International.

The sale of the family-run Leeming Bar Services at Bedale will result in investment in the site and generate additional jobs for the area, according to Will Jolly, automotive and roadside expert at Colliers.

He acted for the owner Carl Les, and said: "It was not an easy decision for Carl to sell the family business, but it is in the best long-term interests of the staff and motorists."
