A shopper was stunned to witness a mum letting her three “feral” children run wild in the aisles at her local supermarket – including LICKING the trolleys.
Michelle Kellaway claimed she spotted the disgusting scenes while out shopping on Tuesday.
She said she was in the Asda store during school hours – and believes the mum must have taken her children out of lessons over coronavirus fears.
Parents face fines for taking their children out of school, unless they are under the age of five, while schools remain open, Hull Live reports.
Michelle, 34, said: “I’ve just been to Asda and seen a mum with all her kids in tow and they’re all licking shelves and being feral.
“She had three children, sliding around on their knees touching packets on shelves and licking the trolley handles.
“It baffles me to think why you would keep children off when school are doing their very best to keep our children safe and maintaining bubbles.
Michelle, from Hull, said saw the mum and children during a trip to Asda in Bilton, near the city.
The youngest was of nursery age, she believes, with the others aged around six and ten.
She said she assumed they were the “same kids that are probably playing out with a million kids on a night, but not sending them to school cause it’s ‘too risky.’
Asked if the mum was trying to control her children, she added: “Think she was probably more focused on getting bits done and getting out of there.
“But if you are keeping your children off school because of coronavirus, don’t go into supermarkets with all three children and then proceed to let them touch all items.”
When contacted, Asda confirmed it had not received any complaints of this nature.
It said it is looking into the claims made by Ms Kellaway.
