ASDA has responded to concerns raised by a customer over claims of a lack of social distancing and mask wearing.

Richard Barrett, 35, from Riddlesden, got in touch with the Telegraph & Argus following a visit to the Asda superstore in Keighley on the evening of Saturday, November 21.

He claimed there was a lack of mask wearing and people flouting social distancing. Mr Barrett said it was the "worst" he had seen and there was no safeguards in place.

When the Telegraph & Argus put these concerns to Asda, a spokesperson said: "We have extensive measures in place across all our stores such as Covid-marshals, protective screens, social distancing signage and numerous hand sanitiser stations. Our customers can rest assured that we continue to follow all government guidance as we have since the start of the coronavirus pandemic."

The spokesperson said the number of customers in stores is monitored and it recently announced it will have 1,000 new safety marshals stationed at the front of every store and in the aisles of larger stores, to help customers with safety queries and reiterate Government guidelines to wear a face covering and maintain social distancing.
