A retirement town that is overspilling with coffee shops is to get its 15th after officials lost their bid to put a lid on them.<br />
<br />
Councillors in Christchurch, Dorset, refused a Coffee#1 permission to take over an empty shop because the town had too many cafes.<br />
<br />
But the national chain appealed the decision and have won their case.<br />
<br />
It means there will now be 15 coffee shops in a 500 metre stretch of the High Street - or one every 33 metres.
