Shocking footage has emerged showing Tesco bargain hunters shoving each other out of the way to get their hands on discounted food.
The footage, filmed at a Tesco superstore, shows up to 13 people forcefully pushing into one another when a worker brings out a trolley of marked-down items.
While waiting for the discounted items to be brought out, one woman tells another to "step back" while using her hand to push her back.
The group of shoppers can be seen waiting at the fire exit where the Tesco employee wheels out the trolley containing the reduced food at the shop, believed to be in Bromley-by-Bow, east London.
Twitter users said the desperation seen in the video highlights the "social and political circumstances" that have led to it.
