Shoppers could be seen waiting outside stores including Primark and Sports Direct - the latter offering a discount to emergency service workers.

Markings encouraging social distancing could be seen on the floor while parts of benches were taped off to ensure people needing a short pause during their trip would not be sitting next to each other.
