Supermarkets Tesco, Asda, Aldi and Lidl go on hiring spree

Supermarkets have gone on a hiring spree as demand surges as a result of the coronavirus crisis.
Tesco, Asda, Aldi, and Lidl said they would hire thousands of staff after hugely increased demand saw shoppers clearing shelves.
That move came before the government said it would pay the wages of workers at firms affected by the pandemic.
And Sainsbury's has asked shoppers to stay 1m away from shop staff if possible, to help keep them safe.
