At least two people have been arrested after fights broke out at several supermarkets holding Black Friday sales.

A woman was also injured when a TV fell on top of her at a Tesco superstore in Greater Manchester.

A number of shops opened at midnight, boasting massive discounts on a range of goods.

Half a billion pounds is expected to be spent on debit and credit cards.

In Burnley police were called to Tesco in the early hours of the morning and the store had to shut as hundreds tried to grab a bargain.
