As the end of the working week approaches and energy levels fall into decline, most of us are needing a cup of coffee more than ever.

And caffeine junkies in Bexley are in luck - as a new Starbucks drive thru opens in Belvedere this morning.

The store in Norman Park is the second drive thru to open in London and is an environmentally friendly hub, equipped with electric car chargers and recycled materials inside.

On its opening day, customers will be invited to sample different drinks from its summer menu in coffee tastings.

The store's partner charity, Dreams Come True, will attend the opening ceremony. The charity helps out children with serious medical conditions.
