Tesco will stop selling disposable barbecues in an effort to prevent wildfires, as temperatures soar across the UK.

The supermarket joins the likes of Sainsbury’s and Ocado in temporarily banning the £2 grills.

The grills will return to the shelves when the weather cools down, while small, metal portable barbecues will be sold as an alternative in the interim.

The move comes as pressure mounts from leading charities and environmental organisations for supermarkets to ban disposable barbecues due to their potentially hazardous impact to the environment.

Marks & Spencer said last week it will stop selling disposable barbecues in all of its UK stores

Aldi and Waitrose have stopped selling the barbecues altogether, while Morrisons and the Co-op have halted sales at stores near national parks only.
