The UK's major supermarket chains are continuing to make adjustments in an attempt to meet high demand and the needs of customers.

It was announced on Thursday that some chains will be using the Government’s data on those most at risk from coronavirus to help vulnerable people get the supplies they need.

Other steps taken include ensuring frontline workers such as police and healthcare staff get their food first before shops officially open to the rest of the public.

Meanwhile, supermarkets will use Government data to get supplies to customers who are most vulnerable to coronavirus, after almost two-thirds of older people said they were struggling to get enough food during the pandemic.

A survey by charity Independent Age said 64% of 489 adults over the age of 65 were unable to buy enough food, on the same day Asda announced it has a “dedicated team” working with the Government to get supplies to those most in need.
