A MUM reacted with anger after a Sutton Coldfield shop placed a suggestive Valentine's Day card at a level which could be seen by young children.

Lauren Baker who runs a children's charity and is a mum-of-two reacted with shock after she spotted Clintons card shop in the Gracechurch Centre had a card which said: “Heyyyyy Gorgeous Fancy A S***".

Lauren who runs the Square peg Foundation charity for disabled children took to Twitter and said: “Maybe @ClintonsTweet could consider product placement a bit better next year. This card at child height? #fancyas*** #StValentinesDay #fail."

Lauren told the Observer: “I think because it is blunt, my five-year-old would easily be able to sound the word out and being bright, at that height, it would be very attractive to little eyes."


The embarrassed card chain admitted they had made a mistake and responded: “Our team have confirmed that this card should have been placed at a higher level in store due to the nature of the text and are sincerely sorry that this has not been the case in this instance."
