A supermarket in Loudwater is one of many across the country that is on the verge of running out of toilet roll and pasta amid coronavirus fears.

Footage shows that Tesco, which is just off the M40 motorway, is nearly out of stock on the everyday essentials and the Italian dish.

This comes after there have been several confirmed cases of the illness, as well as deaths across the country, with the first fatality in the UK happening at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading on March 5.

Following the bulk buying of toilet rolls, Tesco have issued a statement to their customers.

They said: “To help us keep these essential items on sale, we are restricting sales of toilet roll to a maximum of five products per customer.”

One customer who was in Tesco at the time said: "I think it's ridiculous.

"The country has gone into a massive hysteria over an issue that professionals are telling us to keep calm about .

"People need to get a grip."

Other major supermarkets across the country have issued similar statements in terms of people panic buying.
