This is part of safety measures by the company to help protect Lidl staff and customers from infection.

Thousands of similar screens are being rolled out in stores across the country.

Christian Härtnagel, CEO at Lidl GB, said: “The safety of our colleagues and customers continues to be a key priority for us, which is why all 
of our stores will be fitted with protection screens at checkouts.

“We hope that this additional safeguard will help to provide extra reassurance for those both working and shopping in our stores.

“We are eternally grateful to all of our store teams who are working hard every day to support their communities. And, we would once again like to thank customers for their consideration during this very challenging time.”

Last week, the supermarket announced that it was creating up to 2,500 new store jobs to provide necessary additional support to its workforce and customers.
