TESCO staff have been left red-faced after a little accident at one of their stores in Bicester.

Customers to the Tesco Express in Hart Place were surprised to see the reason for a short closure of the shop on Wednesday morning.

In a sign put on the door, shortly after 9am, a message said: "Store Closed.

"Just for a short period of time.

"Sorry for incontinence."

Oxford Mail:

The blunder has attracted a lot of giggles online after a picture was posted on the Bicester and Surrounding Villages Facebook Page.

The post has gone viral and one commenter even offered their sympathies, saying: "Hope they get better soon."

A Tesco spokesman has since responded online to the picture, he said: "Oh dear! I have called the store but not been able to get through yet.

"They may be busy consulting a dictionary.

"Thank you for bringing this to our attention."
