Martin Dunkley was confronted by a security guard when he tried to enter a branch of the store in Cambridge.

The guard told the 45-year-old taxi driver to take six year-old Natalie down for health and safety reasons.

But he refused and decided to shop elsewhere.

A Tesco spokeswoman urged Mr Dunkley to return to the store and talk to the manager about his concerns.

She added: "We take the safety of our staff and customers very seriously. Each store can make these decisions on an individual basis. We have no blanket policy on this issue."

The incident comes after other Tesco stores recently banned customers from wandering around stores wearing pyjamas, then from going barefoot.

  1. To be honest with you ,it is a bit silly going around with a child on a persons shoulder.I think if you are on the street or beach but a store,I must agree,sorry they should not.It just my opinion,the security asked the father and he choose to refuse to be at Tescos,fine go somewhere else then..peoples choices.I believe there is a place for everything.
