Dozens queueing to get into Drake Circus mall – updates

Dozens of shoppers are queueing to get into Drake Circus this afternoon.

Extra measures are in place at the shopping mall, meaning the number of shoppers is regulated and there may be waiting times for some people.

Photographs taken this afternoon show long queues from the New George Street entrance, snaking back to the main road.

It comes as many major stores, such as River Island, Next, Superdry and Schuh are holding sales.

Many stores have their own queueing systems, with Primark’s leading outside of the mall opposite Charles Cross Police Station.

Lush has a no queueing policy and asks customers to come back when the store is less busy, to ensure that the mall is adhering to social distancing policies.
