Staff at Tesco in Ben Travers Way, Burnham-on-Sea, blocked off an aisle of the store at around 12.45pm today (June 28) and threw out hundreds of pounds worth of stock including yoghurts and butter.

Temperatures have reached highs of 29 degrees in Burnham-on-Sea and temperatures today are expected to reach 25 degrees tomorrow (June 29).
