Priest patrols supermarket aisles

A Gloucester supermarket has taken on a vicar to offer spiritual and practical advice to shoppers and staff.

The Reverend Roger Leigh will hold two surgeries a week at Asda in Bruton Way as well as walk the aisles.

Customers come from a variety of faiths - including the city's large contingent of Muslims.

The Minister said: "I'm not there to convert or preach.

"I'm there to counsel on practical and spiritual matters. My job description is to be helpful."

The idea of using a supermarket greeter has been imported from the US where Walmart, which owns Asda, is based.
