AN ASDA Irvine member of staff stepped in to save the day after a customer misplaced her purse containing “a large amount of cash”.

The distressed customer phoned the store, and Grant, who works as a porter, retraced her steps and managed to find it in the trolley bay.

He said: “The lady was really worried and sounded so upset. So I retraced her steps around the store and thankfully there it was in the trolley bay, with all the money still in it.

“I was over the moon to be able to tell the customer we’d found it. There was a big sigh of relief all around.”

Grant has been nominated for an Asda service superstar award for his actions.
