ANGRY TAMWORTH mums gathered at Tamworth’s Sports Direct store in Ventura Park yesterday (Friday) to hold a peaceful protest against the treatment of a 25-year-old woman who claims she was thrown out of the store’s Nottingham branch for breastfeeding her baby.
Over a dozen local breastfeeding mums turned up at the Tamworth store to feed their babies at the ‘nurse-in’ at 2pm.
The protest was one of over 60 happening across the country.
Nicola Holmes who lives in Tamworth and has a three-year-old son and a baby daughter, told the Herald: “It doesn’t matter whether you’re breastfeeding or bottle feeding I will support a woman’s right to feed her child.
“All that woman wanted from Sports Direct was an apology and they haven’t apologised.”
The Herald has so far been unable to contact Sports Direct.
