‘Vomit on your own doorstep!’

PUBLISHED: 09:44 06 December 2012


Axminster is not clubland, says angry mum.

Axminster is Axminster, a peaceful town in rural Devon - not clubland.

So, why is it that mothers have to walk their children to school dodging vomit?

It is a question angry mum Jen Ball is posing.

“As if it isn’t bad enough that on our walk to school from Willhayes Park in Axminster myself and my son have to skip our way through piles of dog mess, now we have to contend with vomit-strewn pavements too,” she said.

“It is not something I wish to explain to my son at 8.30 in the morning.

“This is Axminster people, not clubland in the West End.”

Jen has a message for the culprits: “Will people please show a little respect to others... If you can’t stomach your drink and kebab, then at least go home and vomit on your own doorstep.

“You would be more likely to come back and wash it down after.”
