A strong smell which once again has appeared in the Tesco Extra in Andover has put off many customers.

Andover residents have taken to Twitter and Facebook to further discuss the horrible smell with many speculating why it smells so bad.

A commonly spread assumption is that Tesco is set under a sewage line, however, it comes to light what the issue is in a further statement by Tesco.

The Metro reported that multiple stores across the UK have experienced the same issue. Some stores are encountering customers actually leave their trolleys and leave the store.
