Shoppers were left out in the cold when a power cut hit an Isle of Wight supermarket.

The electrics went off at about 6pm on Wednesday at Lidl’s Newport branch causing the store to cease trading and having to close early.

One customer took to Facebook to describe the power cut causing “bedlam”.

An Lidl spokesman said: “We’re sorry for any inconvenience this caused.”
