Are you not able to pay for your groceries? Customers may have noticed problems at the checkouts in Sainsbury's Winnersh this morning (March 16).

The supermarket has said this is due to experiencing “technical issues” which are affecting some stores, the online delivery service and “ability to contact customers.”

Sainsbury's has also said because of this matter, they will “not be able to fulfil the vast majority of today's Groceries Online deliveries.”

In a statement, Sainsbury's said: "Due to an error with an overnight software update, we are experiencing issues with contactless payments.

"All of our stores are open as usual today, accepting chip and pin and cash payments.

Unfortunately, this also means we will not be able to deliver the vast majority of today’s Groceries Online orders and we are currently unable to contact customers directly.

"Our online ordering system is working as normal and customers can place a new order now for delivery any time from tomorrow.

"We apologise to customers for the inconvenience and are working hard to fix the issue."
