A ‘bouncer’ was brought in to watch over frustrated mums as parents made a last minute rush to a school uniform store on Tyneside, it has been claimed.
As hundreds of parents queued to get uniforms to send their off-spring back to school, they told how a security guard stood over at Emblematic shop on North Tyneside Industrial Estate in Longbenton .
