Following our earlier report of an incident that took place at Newport Sainsbury’s over the weekend, we’ve now had a response from Sainsbury’s HQ.
A spokesperson for Sainsbury’s said, “We take this incident very seriously and the matter is being investigated by all parties concerned.
“We are in touch with the customers affected by the accident and apologise unreservedly. The incident appears to have been a result of a lighting column falling in strong winds over the weekend.
The spokesperson from Sainsbury’s went on to say, “All other lighting columns around the store were safety checked immediately and are securely braced.
“We would like to reassure customers that our car park is safe to use.”
