There were chaotic scenes at midnight as shoppers descended on Stevenage’s Tesco Extra store for ‘Black Friday’.

An American phenomenon, the day follows the country’s Thanksgiving celebrations and sees retailers offer big discounts and deals to mark the start of the festive season.

In Stevenage, hundreds of people gathered at the Tesco store in the town centre where a mad scramble ensued as shoppers ripped open black boxes containing TVs.
