Supermarket shelves are once again being stripped of toilet rolls by ‘irrational’ shoppers as the looming second national lockdown appears to have triggered a fresh wave of panic buying.

Hundreds of shoppers were pictured queueing outside packed stores ahead of Boris Johnson’s announcement that England would enter a month-long shutdown from Thursday, until December 2. This morning it was revealed by Cabinet Minister Michael Gove that the lockdown could be extended if the virus is not brought under control – amid fears 85,000 people could die from coronavirus this winter.

When this man was asked why he had bought 20 loaves of bread from Asda he became very offensive, says one Facebook user. image: Facebook.

Social media groups exploded with rants and raves over a lack of baby food, bread, nappies, and even some basic toiletries. ALL of the complaints mentioned in some way the apparent lack of interest or intervention by supermarket staff to limit purchases of particular items.

One Facebook user, Samantha Hunt, said: “Fuming that people have panic brought all the sma hungry baby milk at Asdas! Not even any of the pre-made ones.” – Leigh Butler wrote: “What the hell is wrong with these people. We went through this already. The food doesn’t run out there is no need to stockpile. Why can’t ppl just buy as normal it’s so ridiculous.”

Another Facebook user, Stacy Nancy posted: “I had trouble through the first lockdown buying baby milk that I ended up having to use full-fat cows milk instead!! I felt like a terrible mum, it’s disgusting that people are doing this again!! And lastly, Sally Barrett wrote on Facebook:
“This is just ridiculous why hasn’t Asda put limits on products !!!!!!”
