Morrisons on Whitchurch Road in Shrewsbury is one of a handful of stores across the county that has set up a special 'Morrikidz Till' just for youngsters, allowing children to scan their parents' shopping.

The move received a hugely positive reaction on social media and was hailed by parents across the country as an 'amazing' idea.

The Shropshire Star has visited the store to see the new till first-hand – and got to see Harriet Amos, from Shrewsbury, giving it a go.

The eight-year-old gave it a glowing review, having scanned her parents' shopping under the watchful eyes of the store's community champion, Vicky Hughes.
