Mum ‘let feral children lick trolley shelves and touch items during Asda shop’

A woman has spoken of her disbelief after she witnessed a mum allowing her three "feral" children to run wild at Asda, licking the trolley handle and touching everything in sight.

Michelle Kellaway, 34, said she was shopping in Bilton Asda, east Hull, when she spotted a mum with “all her kids in tow” letting them run wild.

The shopper claims to have seen the woman during school hours and assumed the mum had taken her children out of school over coronavirus fears.

She said the kids were "licking shelves and being feral," letting them touch anything in sight, despite the pandemic.

Michelle told HullLive : “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.

"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.

"She had three children, sliding around on their knees touching packets on shelves and licking the trolley handles.”

The annoyed shopper said the experience "baffled her" and doesn’t understand why "you would keep children off school" and let them run wild.

She said: "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.

"Assuming the youngest one was maybe nursery age, but the other were definitely school age maybe six and the eldest around ten."

Ms Kellaway was asked if the mum was trying to control her children, but admitted she thought the woman was focusing on "getting bits done and getting out of there."

She said: "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."
