Majestic Wine Warehouse, Wootton.

It looks like Comet’s former owner wants to take over Majestic Wine’s UK network – which includes a store in Wootton.

OpCapita is understood to be among investors bidding as the company wants to become an online-only retailer.

The private equity firm faced controversy when Comet collapsed in 2010, leaving taxpayers with an estimated 50 million pound bill.
