Shoppers across East Anglia were faced with long queues as Asda experienced problems with its card machines across the country.

The supermarket chain said it was working on the issue after scores of shoppers took to social media to complain about the delays.

People posted photos of cashiers using old-fashioned card-readers, while others said stores were only accepting cash.

An Asda spokeswoman said: 'We are in the process of resolving a technical issue with our card payment system in stores.

'We're continuing to process payments as quickly as we can but apologise to our customers for the inconvenience this has caused.'
