Daily Mirror - - 3AM WEEKEND - BY JOHN KELLY

A MUM claims her fam­ily were in­tim­i­dated by ve­gan ac­tivists hold­ing a silent protest in a su­per­mar­ket.

Louise Kirby, 38, said her two daugh­ters were so scared, her nine-year-old shouted: “I’m a veg­e­tar­ian!”

The mum of four, who was in the meat aisle, said: “They were stand­ing there re­ally star­ing at me while hold­ing their plac­ards.

“They up­set my twoyear-old and scared So­phie so much she ran­domly shouted she was a veg­e­tar­ian.” Louise, of Bolton, told se­cu­rity and the group was es­corted out of Sains­bury’s.

Bolton Chicken Save, be­hind the protest, said: “Our aim is to pro­mote ve­g­an­ism peace­fully. We’re sorry the lady felt we were there to in­tim­i­date her.”

Sains­bury’s thanked its staff who stepped in.
