Retailer Lidl Ireland says it is to temporarily stop sale of certain items due to longer queues at some stores.

This includes a Crivit outdoor trampoline, Smoby garden slide, Gemini swingset and a wooden kitchen.

In a statement, the company says: "At Lidl, the safety of our colleagues and customers is our number one priority.

"We have implemented numerous measures across all of our stores over the past two months in order to ensure appropriate social distancing can be achieved.

"Due to unprecedented and exceptional demand on certain items in recent days, we have seen queues form outside our stores prior to opening.

"These queues have made social distancing externally more challenging".

It adds that the items, which were due to be sold on Monday May 4th, will go on sale at a later date.

It has apologised to customers - but says "the safety of our team and customers must take priority at this challenging time."
