This will remove the need to insert a £1 coin or token to release a trolley from its bay.

Simon Nunwick, store general manager for Morrisons in Retford said: “Our nation is getting busier and we have less free time than previous generations.

“Customers in Retford have told us that they want a quicker shop.”

“The removal of trolley locks is just one of the improvements we are making to make for a faster and easier shopping trip.”

Morrisons say 150,000 locks will be removed from stores across the country this July.

The move will be part of a significant investment programme of changes being made to make shopping trips easier for customers.”
