A supermarket on the Isle of Dogs has been plagued by reported power cuts after experiencing a "technical issue".

The Asda store in East Ferry Road was closed over the weekend of April 27-28 due to a suspected power cut that appeared to affect the entire store and the petrol station. 

Shoppers were left confused when they arrived last Saturday to shop, only to find the store closed during its opening hours.

"We are pleased to confirm that the store has since re-opened and would like to thank our customers for their continued patience whilst we work to get the store running as usual.”

Firefighters from the London Fire Brigade (LFB) were called to the supermarket on Saturday at 4.38pm after smoke was seen rising from the building. 

A spokesperson for LFB advised that an automatic fire alarm had been triggered but when they arrived, there was no fire.
