The GREGGS bakery chain has offered to provide frontline emergency service staff with free drinks during the Coronavirus outbreak.

A spokesman for the chain said: '"Greggs has a long-standing history of supporting the communities that we serve."

To get the free drink, those working in the frontline will be asked to show their work pass as proof of their profession.

Greggs added that it would keep it shops open for as long as possible but this depended on Government advice.

It added however that there could be changes to future opening hours.

Earlier in the week McDonald's also said that emergency services, together with health and social care workers would be able to collect free drinks at all restaurants while they remain open.
