Aldi makes brilliant change to its supermarket queues amid the coronavirus pandemic

Aldi says: "All day, every day, key workers in the NHS, police and fire service will take priority ahead of queues into our stores upon showing a valid ID"

Aldi has said that nurses, police officers and firefighters will take priority in its queues.

In a statement, it said: "All day, every day, key workers in the NHS, police and fire service will take priority ahead of queues into our stores upon showing a valid ID.

"This is in addition to early access on a Sunday, where they can enter stores 30 minutes prior to opening."

The statement from the supermarket then adds: "Thank you from everyone at Aldi."

The news comes amid the ongoing UK coronavirus crisis, with the death toll once again rising on Friday, March 27.

The number of deaths related to Covid-19 in the country has now surpassed 700, with many thousands more infected across the UK.

Among those to test positive are Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Health Secretary Matt Hancock and Chief Medical Office Chris Whitty.

All three men announced their positive tests on Friday, March 27, with all three experiencing "mild symptoms" and self-isolating.

Aldi operates multiple stores in Birmingham and has made the changes to its queues amid huge pressure on supermarkets.

Shelves have been stripped bare amid reports of stockpiling, bulk buying and panic purchases, with Aldi among the many retailers affected.
