Shoppers fight over discount food - with one woman hit with a pizza in scuffle as they battled over reduced items in an Asda store

Glad I’m vegan. No one touches reduced vegan food.

Gavin Whigham

Heartbreaking that people feel the need to fight to eat.

Karen Finlay

When I worked in Tesco the same crowd of people came in night after night looking for the reduced food items, they would fight over it all the time, it got so bad the staff had to empty the reduced cabinets into a trolly take it into the back shop and further reduce it to stop being caught in the scuffle.

Lisa Collins

Initially this made me laugh that people would fight over reduced food. Then reality hit me... this is actually very sad that people are having to fight over reduced food! Be it because they might not be able to afford the food at normal price or they just really love a bargain. Either way, it's sad.

Roy Miller Cummings

I remember seeing this in Scotland when I was on a visit. Couldn't believe it. People gathering at a point in the store where they knew the items were coming out to be sold at reduced prices. So thankful that I have never ever been in that position.

Leanne Innes

They've done this for years . I worked for Safeway 22 years ago and it happened then. Christmas will be the same.

John Hamilton

It’s like chucking scraps to beggars. But let's just turn a blind eye to it because its not on your doorstep. And by the way I've seen it happening in stores in Edinburgh. Not nice viewing.

Jo Reynolds

It's so sad that it's coming to a point where people feel the need to fight over reduced food.

Kaz Baxter

Heartbreaking that people are fighting for reduced food. But this is what it's coming to when that's all people can afford now.

Henry Campbell Gillan

Welcome to Johnson and Farage's Brexit Britain. It can only get worse.

Jon Sakura

Is this shocking footage from one of the richest county in the world? No way! I would expect a much better standard of life after Brexit.

Elli McVay

Maybe if the government helped more people living in poverty then people wouldn’t be having to argue over discounted food in the first place.
