Morrisons 'quiet hour' for autistic shopping introduced

Supermarket chain Morrisons has introduced a weekly "quieter hour" for autistic shoppers who struggle with music and noise.

Its 439 UK stores will dim lights, turn music off, avoid using the tannoy and turn check-out beeps down on Saturdays from 09:00 to 10:00.

The National Autistic Society says it is a "step in the right direction".
