I, your roving reporter, was meeting with up my doggy walking friends in Saltdean Oval the other day, when a friend said, 'Did you know there are no toilet rolls left in Longridge Avenue Coop?' The next day I investigated Lustrells Coop to find similar empty shelves. Then at Zone Zine we were presented with the following picture.
Is this capitalising on the current fearful situation for us?

Certainly the general advice is that contingency plans are in place. Any panic buying may lead to a brief hiccup, but the supplies will readjust.
While we all need to monitor and take the NHS and Government advice, we should try and behaviour as normally as possible. Toilet rolls for the many not just the few.
