Cambridge Asda baskets swiped as 5p bags phased out

Supermarket giant Asda said it has been forced to order dozens of new baskets because of a shortage at a store - caused by customers taking them home.

The baskets went missing at the store in Cambridge after the company began phasing out 5p plastic bags.

The store only has 30 to 40 left for its customers.

An Asda spokesman said the firm asked "that the small number of customers who are taking our baskets home with them use their bags for life instead".

A new load of 100 plastic green baskets to replace those that have gone missing is set to arrive at the store at the Beehive Centre next week.
