A WOMAN has been arrested after a fracas at a Hereford supermarket.

Police were called to the Tesco in Bewell Street in Hereford following a report of a woman causing a disturbance at around 3pm on February 14, a spokesperson for the West Mercia Police said.

Officers searched the supermarket and ensured that nothing had been damaged during the commotion and promptly arrested a 31-year-old woman on a warrant for failing to appear in court, they added.

The shop remained open as normal despite the incident.


"All-out melee"

A number of shocked shoppers headed to social media afterwards to discuss what happened.

Ryan Stanley claimed that he was in the shop at the time and described the situation as an "all-out melee".

"We were getting shoved into the store by staff and police for protection," he said. 

"Followed by confusion and  'yay at least the queue for the kiosk has cleared'."
