A mum has spoken of her shock after her online grocery order, which included alcohol, was left with her 14-year-old daughter.

Lisa Reeve's daughter Emma Clark was still in her school uniform when the ASDA delivery driver asked her to sign for the goods at their home in Horsford last week.

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital employee returned home from work to discover the shopping, including beer, had arrived.

Asda officials have said an investigation into the incident has been launched.

Single mum Ms Reeve said: “I didn't realise that I had made the mistake of ordering the goods between 3pm and 5pm instead of later but even so they shouldn't have left it with my daughter - she's only 14 and was in her school uniform.”

She said her daughter, who goes to Hellesdon High School, was a bit “flustered” but still signed for the goods on Tuesday, June 8.

They tend to get online shopping from the supermarket twice a month.

Helen McTaggart, PR manager for customer services for Asda, said: “We are very disappointed that this has happened. Although incidents like this are extremely rare, we do take them very seriously.

“We are taking the appropriate action with the colleague involved and have already put plans in place to re-train everyone at the store to ensure this doesn't happen again.”
