Rationing of essential items is being reinstated at Kenilworth's Tesco Express store.

Tesco is reintroducing a purchasing limit on a number of key products in all its stores, including the Kenilworth Leyes Lane branch, as it did at the start of the coronavirus crisis when panic-buying was rife.

There will be a three-items per customer limit on flour, dried pasta, toilet rolls, baby wipes and anti-bacterial wipes.

A Tesco spokesperson said today (Fri): "We have good availability, with plenty of stock to go round, and we would encourage our customers to shop as normal.

"To ensure that everyone can keep buying what they need, we have introduced bulk-buy limits on a small number of products.

"To help our customers shop safely, we will also have colleagues at the entrances of our larger stores to remind customers about the safety measures we have in place, including the legal requirement to wear a face covering."

The supermarket giant is also enforcing a purchasing limit on a small number of additional online products, such as rice and canned vegetables.
