A woman was overcharged while buying fruit and vegetables from a Jersey supermarket – because the shop assistant’s breasts were resting on the scales.
Jim Hopley, chief executive of Channel Islands Co-operative, said the assistant’s seat had been too low.
Mr Hopley said this had caused the shopper to be accidentally charged an extra £5, which had now been refunded. He said they had taken action to make sure it did not happen again.
Mr Hopley told BBC Jersey: “It was resolved instantly, I feel very sorry for the individual involved, she mustn’t be embarrassed.
