The long-awaited flagship rooftop restaurant for the city’s £165m latest retail development threw open its doors last night.

An exclusive launch party was held at Issho with famous faces from the Emmerdale cast and local football and rugby players on the guest list.

They tucked into authentic Japanese food and champagne and enjoyed traditional entertainment including the Kagami-biraki, believed to bring good luck.
