Three women collapse during sales
Two of the women were taken to hospital suffering from suspected hypothermia after waiting for the store to open at Birmingham's Bullring.
A shop assistant had breathing problems at a store in Wednesbury, West Midlands, and a woman hurt her hand at Next in Fort Dunlop, Birmingham.
The stores, offering up to 50% discounts, opened as early as 5am GMT.
Hohoho this story was taken from the BBC website here. All stores mentioned are local to me, it seems the West Midlands people do love their sales! My sightings were not wrong, although the infamous 5am Next sale didn't start until this morning!
