An Asda petrol station in Ipswich is going cashless as the supermarket looks to make more of its forecourts card-only. 

The supermarket giant said that the changes are being made to its petrol stations as more than nine in 10 payments made at their forecourts were via card or contactless devices.

The move will affect the petrol station in Whitehouse, next door to the McDonald's.

A spokesman for Asda said: "This change only affects 82 drive thru fuel stations attached to Asda Superstores.

"All Asda stores will continue to accept both cash and card payments as normal.”

Asda have stated that staff working at petrol stations will be redeployed to other roles. 

The spokesman said work to convert some sites had started in December with the project expected to be finished by the summer.
