IKEA's massive store near Leeds is set to reopen next month - with a range of measures in place to protect against the coronavirus.

The Swedish furniture giant says it is closely following guidance from UK authorities and as a result its stores, including the one alongside the M62 at Batley - the nearest one to York - will be open from June 1.​

It is asking customers to 'ensure a safe shopping experience' by shopping alone, if they can.

"Only bring one other person from the same household, if you need special assistance or if you need to bring your children with you," it said.

​"There will be a queuing system outside to manage entry into the store.​ We’ll have co-workers and signage throughout the store to help you stick to social distancing guidelines.​

"​As you might expect, we'll be doing extra scrubbing, cleaning, and sterilising to make the whole store as safe as possible for you. ​

​"Hand sanitisers will be stationed throughout the store, as will new protective screens at key points such as checkouts.

"We have also installed safety screens at key points across the store including checkouts to provide extra protection.​"
