Death: Michael Buckley, 60, has died after being knocked to the ground at The Glade shopping centre in Kent
One M & S employee said the
victim was left sprawled on the floor in agony after what appears to
have been a ‘moment of madness’.
He said: ‘She just seems to have rammed
into him. It is everyone’s nightmare. We have seen it so many times in
the food hall, people are just so impatient these days.’
A 30-year-old woman was arrested on
December 26 on suspicion of GBH. She has been bailed to return on March
26 pending further investigation.
Shopping shock: The row allegedly broke out while the man was shopping in a Marks and Spencer
The clash appears to be the latest in a growing number of so-called ‘trolley rage’ incidents in our supermarkets.
In November 2011, Hayley Cook, then
a 24-year-old pregnant mother, was jailed for a year after breaking a
woman’s pelvis outside a branch of Tesco in Ramsgate
The court heard she swore violently at Lynne White and crashing her trolley into her, also trapping her own son’s hand.
In March that year police were called to Morrisons in Weymouth, Dorset, to break up a fight between shoppers.
An elderly man was left with a head
wound after two shoppers bumped their trolleys into each other and a
brawl broke out.
