The Jarrow Morrisons edition of Michael Jackson's Thriller has racked up thousands of YouTube views in just a day.

Forty of the store's staff sacrificed their free time last week to make the parody video, which was shot entirely on an iPhone 6 before the store opened to the public.

Andria Williams, store community champion, was delighted the video had gone down so well with staff and customers alike.

The 45-year-old said: “It was filmed throughout last week before the store was open and after it was shut.
