Customers queueing at Greggs break out into impromptu flashmob

Customers at a popular sandwich shop were treated to a dance

Greggs is a popular restaurant for Stockton residents to pick up a sandwich or a tasty pastry for breakfast.

Customers were in for a surprise when other people standing in queue spontaneously started dancing to the beat of a drum and a saxophone, reported NY Times.

A video of the incident shows the public's reactions when a line of people - including a woman with a pram and a man in a high-vis vest started performing a choreography on the sidewalk.

“I’m just coming out of M&S right at the end of the video and initially wondered what was going on."
