THE outbreak of coronavirus has seen people flock to shops and supermarkets to stock up on supplies in case they need to self-isolate.

This has seen shelves decimated of anything and everything, from hand sanitiser to tomato ketchup.

A number of big chains have already released lists of items they are limiting to shoppers, including Morrison's, Tesco and Sainsbury's.

Aldi has now followed suit and revealed people will be limited to four of every item.

The company said on its UK Facebook page: "All our stores remain open and continue to serve our valued customers.

"We have good product availability and our incredible colleagues are working tirelessly to restock and replenish shelves as quickly as they can.

"As we have seen an unprecedented demand across our range, we will be limiting customer purchases to four units on all products to ensure all of our customers have an opportunity to purchase them.

"Thank you to all our colleagues and customers for your patience during this time."
