This is not even as newsworthy as the 'cool dude' in the mankini in the latest ASDA advert.
Still, I guess, at least ASDA, and hence their customers, didn't have to pay for this waste of space.

"CUSTOMERS and staff at Asda in Poole were evacuated this afternoon." + "The store continued operating as normal." Obviously just a regular occurrence at that store!
