ASDA stores in Lancashire are limiting their trading hours to stock up.

The store in Accrington along with many other Asda's across the UK and some in Lancashire are reducing hours to re-stock essential items.

A notice on the window if the store read: "To aid replenishment of the store and the protection and health and safety of our colleagues and customers, this store will not be trading 24 hours until further notice."

New trading hours start today and are as follows:

7am - 11pm Monday to Saturday, and 10am - 4pm on Sundays.

The Blackburn store will be opening at 7am and closing at 10pm, with Sunday hours remaining the same from 11am till 5pm.

Colne's Asda will also reduce the hours opening at 7am and closing at 12 midnight Monday to Friday.

Rawtenstall and Blackburn Asda's will both operate normal hours.

Asda have since released a statement on their website detailing their plans amid the coronavirus outbreak.

A statement read: "We are staying close to the government on the latest information and advice to ensure we are doing the right thing for both our colleagues and our customers.

"We know that one of the most important ways to help prevent the spread of any virus is to maintain a good hygiene, so as per the NHS guidance we are recommending that our customers and colleagues continue to thoroughly wash their hands on a regular basis and to follow the advice on catch-it, bin-it, kill-it for coughs and sneezes.

"Whilst we are doing everything we can to maintain the availability of products for all our customers, we are asking our customers to shop responsibly in our stores and online so that everyone has access to the essentials.

"We are also grateful to our colleagues for their efforts to make sure our shelves are being refilled regularly and would ask customers to be patient with them as they try to meet this increased demand for products on the shop floor."
