Injured mum refused wine because teenage daughter was helping her pack Morrisons shopping

A mum with a broken hand was stopped from buying booze at Morrisons – because her 17-year-old daughter was helping her pack her shopping.

Nikki Chapman, 46, from Warwickshire, was left embarrassed after she was told she could not buy alcohol because her daughter Ellie was underage.

She had asked Ellie to help her pack party snacks and three boxes of Carling last Wednesday (24 July) because she was struggling with the injury she suffered in a motorbike accident.

But the mum-of-three – whose arm is in a cast – was stunned when they were stopped at the check-out by a member of staff at the store in Royal Leamington Spa, Warks.

The shop worker asked to see Ellie’s ID, and when Nikki said her daughter was 17 the assistant banned them from buying the booze. Nikki then complained to the store manager who maintained they could not sell her the alcohol.
