Scores of Tesco home delivery shoppers have seen their orders canceled today, due to a ‘system issue’.
The supermarket giant said the problem was seeing ‘some’ delivery orders cancelled, with customers urged to rebook.
Many have taken to social media in anger after Tesco customer services contacted them over the problems.

A spokesperson said the chain was ‘really sorry’ for the cancellations, caused by a ‘technical issue’.
One customer wrote: “No communication from Tesco whatsoever. Will not reply to my requests. Absolutely appalling service. No doubt will be happy to take my money in the future.”
Another said: “So it seems Tesco has canceled all deliveries and not told their customers?
“Now I have to go to the supermarket (obviously not Tesco) as I need it this evening for a party tomorrow.”
Why did I give @Tesco another chance?? Delivery due 14.00 email canceling it at 12.56. No explanation even.
“We hope this doesn’t cause you any inconvenience and hope to see you shopping with us again soon.”
Yes it does and no, I don’t think you will. #laststraw

In response on Twitter, Tesco said: “I am so sorry that your order has been canceled today, it’s not something we ever want to do. The issue today was caused by a system issue.
“You have not been charged for your order and I would recommend going online and rebooking an available slot.”
But some called for compensation for the delays.

One angry social media user posted: “The communication from Tesco has been appalling. Not only that, the Customer Services email is no longer monitored & 0800 no has delays. Compensation please.”
A Tesco spokesperson apologised for the disruption and said customers should rebook.
@Tesco my food delivery was canceled by Tesco Newmarket today without a call or an email to let me know, and they cannot reschedule. Really poor service, and not the first time!
