But from today it has reopened for takeaway customers after operating social distancing and putting extra hygiene measures in its stores.

M&S said the plans for reopening came after a trial at five locations.

It said the company had prepared "rigorous guidance for colleagues and will have extensive signage for customers so they can pick up their coffee safely".

The company has stressed there will be no customers allowed in the restaurants.

It added that they would be “returning with much smaller teams in our restaurants, however, we will endeavour to serve our customers with a full menu”.

They will be open for business from 7am to 10pm, seven days a week.
