UPDATE 1-Tesco and Sainsbury's post weak growth, lose market share - Kantar Worldpanel

 (Adds table)
    LONDON, Oct 16 (Reuters) - Britain's three biggest grocers,
Tesco, Sainsbury's and Asda, lost
market share in the 12 weeks to Oct 7 as consumers increasingly
shopped at discount supermarkets Aldi and Lidl, research firm
Kantar Worldpanel said on Tuesday.
    Sainsbury's, which has agreed to takeover Asda, was the
laggard of the "big four" chains, with growth of 0.6 percent,
Kantar said. Sales at market leader Tesco rose 0.9 percent,
while Asda saw an increase of 2.4 percent, the same as seen at
number four, Morrisons.
    Aldi increased sales by 15.1 percent, its fastest rate of
growth since January, Kantar said, and Lidl attracted more
shoppers through its doors, helping sales rise 10 percent.
