The Leader of Basildon Council Gavin Callaghan has written to the CEO of the Range saying that by exploiting Government legislation “in order to maximise your profits at this time, you are showing yourselves to be examples of the worst of British business.”

Cllr Callaghan goes on to state that it is his “firm belief that The Range should now leave the selling of essential food and medicine items to supermarkets and pharmacies who are stocking these items in the numbers needed for people to follow the guidance in the spirit in which it is meant and in which the police have confirmed is sensible.

“You are forcing my residents to travel to work to provide non-essential services, therefore putting their lives, the lives of your customers and of their families at risk as a result.”

Over the weekend Cllr Callaghan also addressed the issue in letters sent to Ministers.
