"Leigh Day claims to represent more than 30,000 shopfloor staff from the big four supermarkets – Asda, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Morrisons – in similar pay cases. The total payout, if the supermarkets lose, could be more than £8bn, said Leigh Day.

The £8bn estimate is based on all 500,000 store workers across the big four supermarkets who are making a claim, it added.
