A LONG standing problem with a set of revolving supermarket doors is finally being addressed.
Work started yesterday (Monday) to replace the troublesome revolving entrance to Asda in Hatfield with new sliding doors.
The old doors have been known to malfunction repeatedly for a number of years, hindering shoppers from accessing the town centre.
But it is expected that exiting the supermarket will be far simpler once work is completed in a month.

Labour councillor Maureen Cook told the Welwyn & Hatfield Times it was "great" news for Hatfield.
The Hatfield Central ward councillor said: "It will be a big help and improvement.
"So many people have complained about it in the past.
"I'm very, very pleased they are finally sorting it.
"It will make things much better for shop owners and makes thing far easier if you can enter by the side. There's nothing worse than doing all your shopping in the town centre and then walking all the way down the store just to enter it."
An Asda spokesman confirmed workmen were replacing the doors from this week.
