Sainsbury's, in Market Harborough, apologises after mouse seen running down aisle
A supermarket chain has apologised to a family after they said they saw a mouse running down an aisle at one of its stores.
The rodent was seen scuttling past the bread section at Sainsbury's, in Market Harborough, by Anne Iliffe and her son.
They contacted staff and the head office on Friday evening to complain about the possible threat to health at the supermarket.
Mrs Iliffe's husband Denis said: "Walking up the bread section, they both saw a mouse running around in the aisle and under the shelving.

"As well as wrapped bread, there was also unwrapped bread in this aisle.
"The manager stated they knew they had a problem and would order the pest control.
"My wife was told it may have been only one mouse and the food was covered. My wife was left feeling disgusted, as I do. I think more should be done. I don't want to eat my food with mouse droppings."
A Sainsbury's spokesman said: "Cleanliness and hygiene are top priorities for our stores and incidents like this are very rare. Checks are regularly carried out to ensure our high standards are met and would like to apologise to Mr Iliffe and his family for any distress."
