ASDA Cwmbran was forced to close due to rain making its way into the store. A short video posted on Facebook by an individual revealed the chaos in store as staff began to evacuate customers.

A spokeswoman from Asda said:

The store has been closed because of a leak in the ceiling. There is bad weather at the moment.

We are hoping it will be open again in a few hours.
