Supermarket staff and drivers were battling sub zero temperatures to ensure homes received deliveries across Northern Ireland.

The major supermarkets said that staff were working hard to overcome the elements.

A spokesperson for Asda said: “Despite the difficult weather conditions Asda’s team of warehouse staff have been working hard to ensure all customers receive their deliveries.”

A Tesco spokesperson said staff are doing “everything possible” to ensure deliveries get through and customers who have ordered online receive their shopping.

A Sainsbury’s spokesperson said they had not experienced any exceptional difficulty in getting products to their customers.
