An Ayrshire supermarket worker has celebrated 25 years of going wild in the aisles.

Kirsty Kerr has passed the milestone at Aldi — where she joined in 1996.

She currently works as a store assistant at the firm's Saltcoats branch, but has loyally served a number of the company's Ayrshire stores down the years.

Kirsty joined the Aldi team just two years after the German giant opened its first Scottish store.

She said: “It has been a privilege to work at Aldi for 25 years.

"I’ve loved working here and it’s the customers and my colleagues that make the local store such a great place to work.”

"Colleagues like Kirsty are the cornerstone of our business and I thank her for her continued dedication throughout the last 25 years. Hopefully we work together for many more years to come."
