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.
