A SINGLE mum has blasted Iceland and accused the supermarket chain of “discrimination” after she was refused entry into a Bedfordshire store because she was with her seven-year-old daughter.

Cheryl Brooks, 28, claims she was told by a store manager children were not allowed in the supermarket with parents, due to coronavirus pandemic restrictions, and that she should have left her daughter at home.

Cheryl filmed the incident on April 21 and posted the video to Facebook, during which a security guard informs her  “families have to be one person”.

On speak to the manager, she is told to leave her daughter at the front of the store, with an angry Cheryl saying she will do no such thing, as her daughter has “got enough anxiety as it is with the whole situation”.

But the Cheryl questions the safety of leaving a child on their own.

Speaking to The Sun she said:” was rather upset and embarrassed, because there were so many people queuing outside watching me.”
