Tesco's shelves were stripped bare last night as panic buyers attempt to stock up just days before a second national lockdown.

These pictures show the toilet roll aisle at the supermarket store on Southampton Road on Monday night (November 2), which was left almost completely empty.

The flour section did not fare much better as shoppers were keen to stockpile baking goods ahead of the four-week shutdown starting on Thursday.

Salisbury Journal:

Back in March, when the first lockdown was announced, Tesco was among the supermarket chains and retailers forced to introduce rationing on items such as loo roll, pasta and eggs.

With a second lockdown looming, and concerns over panic buying growing, the purchase of flour, dried pasta, toilet roll, baby wipes and anti-bacterial wipes is restricted to three items per customer.

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