Mum’s hor­ror as tod­dler finds sex toy out­side home

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE - STU­ART GREER

AMUM is out­raged af­ter her tod­dler found a sex toy in the stair­well out­side her home.

Lit­tle Lola-Mae Grundy made the shock­ing dis­cov­ery as they walked up to their flat, on Pem­broke Road on the We­ston es­tate in Mac­cles­field.

Mum Jade Beirne screamed and pulled her 19-month-old away.

Jade, 26, has spo­ken of her hor­ror find and warned other res­i­dents to be care­ful.

Jade said: “I live on the first floor, so have to go up two flights of stairs to the flat. For the first time I let Lola-Mae climb the stairs ahead of me while I car­ried up her buggy.

“Sud­denly I looked up and she was reach­ing out for that thing.

“I screamed and pulled her away. I was hor­ri­fied.”

Jade, who works as a school cleaner, rushed Lola-Mae to the flat and called Mac­cles­field Hos­pi­tal for ad­vice.

She said: “I was so wor­ried that she may have touched it be­fore I could stop her so I gave her three baths in a row.

“It’s dis­gust­ing to think that it could have been dis­carded like that.

“I don’t care what peo­ple get up to in pri­vate, but no child should have to see that.”

Jade, who lives with Lola-Mae’s dad An­thony Grundy, who works as a panel beater, has com­plained about the in­ci­dent to her land­lord, Peaks and Plains Hous­ing Trust.

She said: “I have had so many prob­lems liv­ing in th­ese flats, with bro­ken glass on the stairs.

“It has re­ally stressed me out and had an af­fect on Lola-Mae. “This is the fi­nal straw. “The flat is com­pletely un­suit­able for a young fam­ily and I am des­per­ate to move away.”

Jac­qui Sinnott-Lacey, op­er­a­tions di­rec­tor at Peaks and Plains, said: “We en­cour­age neigh­bourli­ness among res­i­dents shar­ing com­mu­nal stair­ways, which means hav­ing re­spect and con­sid­er­a­tion of the im­pact that their pri­vate lives have on each other.”

She added: “I’m so sorry to hear that Ms Beirne is find­ing it dif­fi­cult to find al­ter­na­tive suit­able ac­com­mo­da­tion for her­self and fam­ily.

“We are aware that Ms Beirne has been ap­ply­ing through Cheshire East Choice based let­tings scheme to move else­where and have given her ad­vice on bid­ding for suit­able prop­er­ties as they be­come avail­able.”
