Isle of What Now?

Asda might be smart when it comes to shopping but the supermarket giant has dropped the ball when it comes to bags in its new store on the Isle of Wight. The store opened on Monday in Newport, with 10,000 exclusive bags having been designed by two of the island’s residents.

A spelling error had made it past the bosses however with the island’s name featured as the  ‘Isle of White’.
