Pictures taken in Croydon have shown the impact coronavirus is having on shoppers in the borough.

The images, taken at the Costco store in Imperial Way during opening hours on Sunday, show people dozens of people queuing in line and waiting to get in.

This came soon after after Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordered pubs and restaurants across the country to close as the Government announced unprecedented measures to cover the wages of workers who would otherwise lose their jobs due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Fast-food giant McDonald's also announced in Sunday that it would be the latest high-street chain to announce its closure amid fears.
