Thank the team

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Tesco Smash -

Thierry Van­der­putte Tesco store man­ager Thierry Van­der­putte said emer­gency ser­vices and staff at the su­per­mar­ket han­dled the in­ci­dent calmly and pro­fes­sion­ally.

He said: “I didn’t ac­tu­ally see what hap­pened, the only peo­ple that did were in the cafe.

“For­tu­nately there were not too many peo­ple in that area and as it was win­ter, no­body was sat out­side the cafe, be­cause it could have been even worse.

“The emer­gency ser­vices were on the scene very, very quickly. By the time I had made my way down from the of­fices up­stairs to the area, the paramedics and am­bu­lances there al­ready there.

“I would like to thank the team on the day, both the Tesco team and the emer­gency ser­vices teams be­cause it was so well han­dled.

“We just hope that the lady re­cov­ers and we wish her well. We also hope the el­derly cou­ple re­cover from this as well.”
