Coronavirus: Morrisons delivery demand 'to create 3,500 new jobs'

Supermarket chain Morrisons has announced it is to create 3,500 new jobs to expand its home delivery service amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The retailer said it would be recruiting about 2,500 pickers and drivers, plus 1,000 staff in its distribution centres.
It will make more slots available and also set up a call centre for those without access to online shopping.
Morrisons said the move would help "at a time of national need".
Other measures it is planning includes a "colleague hardship fund" to help staff, in addition to pledging sick pay to all employees and redeploying colleagues who are vulnerable to the crisis.
The supermarket said it was also launching a new range of simple-to-order food parcels from 23 March.
