Online shopping at giant retailer Tesco broke this afternoon, with the system unable to find pages and problems at checkout.

A representative at tesco.com confirmed the company was having technical difficulties and said it was working to get the website and secure checkout problems fixed.

Tesco has recently re-designed its online grocery website to make it more difficult to find the stuff you usually order, like Standard Vodka, tinned shrimps, and the like. A process that usually takes minutes has ended up taking an hour and more.

*EyeSee The guys at Bangalore must be working all the hours God sends to be fixing this problem. At 18:51UT the site is still struggling, a lot.
