A burst water pipe forced a Perth supermarket to close.
Staff at the Tesco Extra on Crieff Road spent Wednesday morning in the car park, turning away shoppers.
Problems began with the store’s water supply the afternoon before, although staff were still able to wash hands using water from a tank.
Tesco decided to close the branch as problems persisted. A spokeswoman said: “We have had to temporarily close our store in Perth due to a water supply issue.
“We’re working with Scottish Water to resolve this as quickly as possible, and are very sorry for the inconvenience caused.”
The sudden closure was followed by larger-than-normal queues of shoppers at Tesco’s Edinburgh Road store.
The Crieff Road branch reopened at around 2pm.
