Staff at a retailer’s shops in Lichfield and Burntwood will be given face visors to help keep them safe during the coronavirus crisis.

Lichfield-based Central England Co-op said it was rolling out the personal protective equipment across the business.

Workers do not have to wear the visors, but they are being made available for 6,200 staff across its food business.
