Tesco to sell plasters in racially diverse skin tones

The UK’s biggest retailer, Tesco, is stocking plasters in a variety of skin tones as it tries to give a better reflection of racial diversity.
It said the plasters, which come in light, medium and dark shades, would “better represent the nation”.
The retailer said they were developed in response to an emotional tweet from a US man, who used a plaster matching his skin tone for the first time.
Tesco said it was the first UK supermarket to make such a move.
People welcomed the news on Twitter, although some questioned why it had taken so long.
