Clothes retailer Next has announced it will reopen its online store today after bosses managed to ‘rework’ its warehouse following coronavirus worries from staff.

Bosses say they have spent two weeks ‘reworking’ warehouse operations and have taken ‘lots of practical measures’ to ensure that staff who want to work ‘feel safe, work safe and are safe’.

‘In order to operate our warehouse safely, we are limiting the number of warehouse colleagues working at any time, and so we will limit the number of customer orders we can take each day,’ says the statement.

‘We have put extra safety measures in our warehouse to ensure our colleagues can work safely for you.’
