The GMB union said its members were among those attacked, and representatives were present at the store on Friday to offer support.

Senior organiser Mark Wilkinson said: "GMB cannot condemn strongly enough the actions of these people and we thank the police for their swift action in arriving to help protect our members from further harm.
