Shoppers were asked to leave the store earlier this afternoon and a number contacted the Peterborough Telegraph to say that they had been told the store had been closed with immediate effect due to an ‘incident’.

A spokesperson for B&Q told the Peterborough Telegraph: “We can confirm that our Peterborough store was temporarily closed following a team member receiving a positive (Covid 19) test result.

“Closing the store for deep cleaning is a precautionary measure and goes beyond government advice.”
