Asda has apologised to a customer who was charged £450 for a loaf of bread at a self-service check out at a store in Wolverhampton.

John Brown only noticed the error when he checked his bank statement, three days after buying two loaves, some jam and a box of eggs.

Mr Brown has been fully reimbursed by the store on Jack Hayward Way.
