A panicked shopper has caused amusement among others at the Spar service station on Roe Lane after donning a full gas mask for his big shop.

The unidentified shopper wearing a filet and a decorator’s gas mask to protect himself from Coronavirus was spotted at the spar store earlier today.

His appearance caused some amusement among shocked drivers stocking up on petrol but the confident man brushed off any criticism and mockery and finished his big shop in style

Currently there is no evidence to suggest a mask will protect you from receiving the Coronavirus strain.
