Mouse Leaps from Tesco Delivery!

Mouse infiltrates man's home via Tesco shopping delivery!

Well-known supermarket chain Tesco were left with red faces recently after reports that a mouse “leapt out” of a customer’s home shopping delivery!

The unknowing shopper – Nick Bain, from Essex – was unpacking his shopping when the critter broke free from his boxed good and vanished into a gap in his home, where it hid for two days. After refunding his money and replacing his shopping order, Tesco sent in pest controllers to catch the mouse and carried out a “thorough check of the store”.

Mr Bain said he had noticed some movement in one of the bags after he received his online shopping order.

Here’s what Mr Bain had to say: “I was going through the bag and I didn’t realise, and when I put my hand in I saw something move,” said the 41-year-old.

“I told my wife there was a mouse in the bag and she jumped off the floor!

“It was just so fast. It’s the last thing you expect with a delivery.”

Mr Bain said the mouse ran into a gap in his kitchen, which is in the middle of a renovation.

“It disgusted my wife. It makes you think: if it was in the van, whose other bags had it been in?

A spokesman from Tesco commented: “We’ve apologised to Mr Bain and the local online food shopping manager has visited him to deliver flowers and a replacement order as a gesture of goodwill.

“A thorough check of the store by pest control found no evidence of further problems, so we’re still investigating to find out exactly what happened.”
