More huge queues have been seen across the region this morning as supermarket shoppers look to grab items only minutes after stores open.
Long queues were spotted around the county this morning from 6am as some of the county’s largest supermarkets opened their doors to customers.
Among them were Tesco stores in Stowmarket and Martlesham where shoppers were spotted out with their trolleys as the doors were opened.
In a Tesco in Clacton, shoppers were seen queueing right around the car park ready to enter the shop at 6am.
Tesco announced yesterday that it was to join other big supermarkets in limiting the number of goods that people could buy.
This followed huge queues on Wednesday morning at some of the county’s biggest supermarkets including Tesco’s at Copdock.
