CUSTOMERS have been thanked for their patience after a card reader glitch led to long queues at check outs in Asda.

The Longwell Green store penned a note to visitors on a board outside, blaming the problems on a 'gremlin'.

The breakdown, on Sunday October 30, caused chaos across the country when the stores' card machine system for accepting payments failed to work.

The technical issue has now been resolved and Asda has apologised for the inconvenience caused to customers.
