Asda prepares for Easter heatwave

With temperatures set to rise to highs of 25 degrees this weekend, it seems flags will be cracking as well as eggs this Easter.

Although the supermarket chain expects to see high sales of chocolate and lamb legs this weekend, it is also predicting increased sales of 60% on BBQ meat, 20% on burger rolls and a whopping 200% on potato salad.

Customers are expected to take advantage of the great outdoors, with a 70% sales increase anticipated for garden furniture.

Ice cream sales are also predicted to soar as customers try to cool down – and sales of sun cream are forecast to rocket by 655%.
