    Supermarkets deny overcharging online customers
    Online sales run by major supermarkets have come under scrutiny from the Office of Fair Trading (OFT).
    "We are examining supermarket pricing online, and we have held confidential discussions with supermarkets," an OFT spokeswoman told the BBC.

    Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury's confirmed that they have held talks with the OFT.

    The OFT is believed to be examining whether supermarkets stick to advertised prices, and if online and store prices differ.

    Its spokeswoman declined to comment on what the inquiry is looking into, or when it might report.

    "Our investigations have no time frame," she said.
