SHOPPERS have raised concerns about a Northwich supermarket car park following a collision between a delivery lorry and a car on Thursday, August 21.

Reader Leneh Buckle sent in this photograph of the aftermath of the incident, which is believed to have involved a milk lorry and happened at Aldi, in Leicester Street, at about 10am.

She said: "I was at the checkout when a woman, who had been in the car, came in looking for her husband.

"A lot of people said they were really concerned about the way that car park is laid out because there's lorries going straight through it."

An Aldi spokesperson said: “Aldi’s customers are its number one priority and we take the health and safety of everyone at our stores extremely seriously.

"It is unusual for us to experience incidents of this nature.

“There are currently discussions ongoing between both parties’ insurance companies, and as such it would inappropriate to comment further at this stage.”

Aldi will soon be having worse problems in their carpark. The far side is supposedly shored up by concrete filled gabions. Unfortunately these are infested by Japanese Knotweed, natives of Japan's volcanoes, which go through concrete like a knife thro' butter. I just hope there is no-one in any vehicles parked there when the concrete eventually fails, and the car park collapses

Aldi have very efficient checkouts in their stores.

You don't need to be in the shop for very long.

This will minimise 'the time at risk' of your car falling into any sink hole or earthquake that may develop whilst in the car park.

Hope this helps.
