Hundreds of people waited in line to get into Tesco superstores for a special shopping hour this morning. 

Videos sent to the Oxford Mail show queues snaking around car parks. 

One NHS worker who went this morning said they had been unable to shop for their family of five all week due to shifts and empty shelves. 

"I had to turn around and come back," they said. "People were queueing all around the car park - there was no social distancing."

Several people have posted on social media in particular about the Bicester store. 

Some have claimed that lots of people waiting in the queues were not NHS staff but regular shoppers. 

There also seemed to be problems at Tesco in Abingdon.

However, those NHS staff who did get in say the stores were 'well stocked' and thanked Tesco for putting on the hour. 

In other areas of the country, stores were forced to implement a 'one in one out' policy. Tesco has also suspended its multi-buy deals.

Tesco has been contacted for comment.

Did you go this morning? What did you think?
