The statement explained: "I wanted to share an update on what we’re doing to ensure that everyone can get the food they need in a safe environment.

"To help protect our customers and colleagues, we have introduced some new measures in line with current government guidance, and also made sure the safety measures we introduced at the start of the pandemic remain in place."

Face masks

Where shopping masks are required, the government has increased fines from £100 to £200 for a first offence.

Some exemptions are in place for those who cannot wear a mask for medical reasons.
