  1. Amazon to deliver Morrisons food shops in Leeds trial

    Shoppers will be able to order their groceries on Amazon and have them delivered the same day, as part of a new scheme being trialled.

    Products will be picked from Morrisons stores as part of the trial in Leeds.

    Morrisons said customers would be able to get their full weekly food shop from the online retail giant for the first time.

    However, only people who pay for an Amazon Prime subscription will be able to benefit from the service.

    Doug Gurr, Amazon UK country manager, said the Morrison on Amazon scheme would offer "increased visibility" for the supermarket and "an even greater choice for our customers".

    Staff at a Morrisons supermarket in Coalville, Leicestershire, have been captured dancing to keep customers entertained.

    Chris Redstone, 40, from Whitwick, caught the dancing scenes earlier today.

    "It's a great way to put a smile on everyone's face and have a bit of a laugh with all that's going on," he said.

    "The two lads doing it were really funny and putting different songs on like Agadoo and YMCA and chatting to everyone and getting them to join in."

  3. Morrisons staff to get £1,000 bonus

    Staff at Bradford-based supermarket Morrisons are to be given a £1,050 bonus this year as the supermarket promised to triple its rewards during the coronavirus outbreak.

    All staff on the front line, who are working in "unprecedented times", will get a 6% bonus on top of their earnings for the next 12 months - the equivalent of more than £1,000 for full-time employees.

    The supermarket said sick or self-isolating employees will also be paid the bonus, which will come in quarterly instalments, rather than in one big cheque at the end.

    Clare Grainger, Morrisons group people director, said: "Our highly valued colleagues have stood tall amidst the coronavirus pandemic, playing their full part in feeding the nation.

    "We want to thank every single one of them for their continued hard work during these unprecedented times by paying a much higher guaranteed bonus for the whole year in recognition of their effort."

    It follows promises by several other supermarkets to pay bonuses during the crisis.

  4. No compensation for Morrisons staff after data leak

    PA Media

    Staff at Bradford-based supermarket chain Morrisons who had personal details leaked online by an employee pursuing a "vendetta" will not receive compensation, the Supreme Court has ruled.

    Morrisons

    The UK's highest court ruled today that the firm should not be held liable for the criminal acts of Andrew Skelton - an internal auditor who leaked the payroll data of around 100,000 members of staff in "revenge" for being given a verbal warning.

    The ruling overturned previous judgments which gave the go-ahead for compensation claims by thousands of employees whose personal details were posted on the internet and sent to newspapers.

    Lawyers for a group of 9,000 claimants who brought the landmark class action against Morrisons said they were "hugely disappointed" by the ruling.

    The decision overturns previous rulings in the High Court and Court of Appeal, which held that Morrisons was vicariously liable for Skelton's actions.

    It was argued on behalf of Morrisons that if those findings were allowed to stand, the company, although "entirely blameless", would be exposed to "compensation claims on a potentially vast scale".

    Legal action was launched after a security breach in 2014 when Skelton, who was subsequently jailed for eight years, leaked the payroll data of around 100,000 employees.

    Information included their names, addresses, bank account details and salaries.
