Lidl has apologised to a Senator who says she was asked to 'wear a different top' next time she visited one of their stores.

Lynn Ruane tweeted that she had been wearing a swim top when visiting a Lidl store.

She said that she had been asked 'discreetly' to dress in 'more appropriate' clothes next time she shopped there.

She said: "As if me wearing a swim suit for a top in the summer is any different to any other little tank top I'd wear. Get a grip."

Responding to Senator Ruane's tweet, Lidl said they were "sorry that this has occurred".

The company said they will speak to "store and regional management to make sure correct procedures are being adhered to".

They said the security guard in question was a "third party provider and not a Lidl employee", and that the company will now be "recommunicating our policy with the security guard and security company involved".

Senator Ruane said Lidl had responded "very promptly" and apologised for the incident.

She added: "I'm glad they will be communicating their policy with the store and security involved."
