    • Thank you. That's very helpful. We would like the diagrams please. I understand that you have completed a written report or statement or completed a form with your account of the accident – but you haven't kept a copy for yourself. Is this correct?
    • Yes i have all the van drivers details .   I referred to ' driving slowly' to my property because the front end of my vehicle was badly damaged , the bonnet was completely cumbled- exposing the engine underneath. I drove slowly as i was scared of my car catching fire or something whilst i was inside . i drove around 2mp round the corner to my property.   It was a transit van, no passengers in the van. He had been in the area working. He lives in another city.   It was 16:25pm, no lights on any vehicles as it was day light. 
    • yes 10 is it that are still not 'accounted for' - possibly the extra 6 billion? Seems likely that despite the already identified horrendous waste of taxpayer money, failure of competence, lying and crony-ism .. the worst may be (likely is) yet to come

    • Thanks. Yes I'm planning on speaking to a lawyer but wondered if any frequent here. Mum won't be living in her place once Dad passes as she is not very mobile, she'll be with our daughter who has a suitable room in the short term until we purchase another property. As far as she's concerned her property will be cleared and placed on the market as soon as Dad's passed. Partly due to it being too big and costly for her to keep running.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Let me start with a little back story.

My son is 3 and disabled

I am his sole carer 24/7 without a break or sleep most if the time.

I have no problem with this as he is my baby and i love him.

But it gives context.

 

About a month ago it was in Tesco shopping i did self scan and after half an hour of my son having a melt down because of the noise we finally got to the pay bit.

 

 

I had just got my card out to pay when a security guard shot over and asked if I had paid for the £4 toy my son was holding.

 

 

Now if you have ever experienced a meltdown you can understand I was all over and stressed I had forgotten however I accepted my mistake payed for the item and that was it.

 

after this I started using the normal checkout so that I have to check everything.

 

 

A few weeks later I was shopping with my son again and he picked up and opened a toy.

I put the packaging in the trolley to be paid for.

 

 

My son dropped the little toy

i went to the toy part and picked up a new one and put the old one back.

I admit this was stupid but he had screamed for about 20mins about the missing one and my brain was in overload close to tears myself.

 

 

I'd paid for the toy and my shopping

the guard (same one) pulled me and my disabled son back to the front desk.

 

 

They had spotted me do the swap (pretty sure he was watching me all the time I was in)

 

 

I apologised and offered to pay for the old toy and that was it over.

Oh and another guy walked over and threw the packaging at me aggressively.

 

Safter this I stopped taking my son shopping.

I have my dad drive him around till I'm done.

I'm making the effort.

 

 

I've been in everyday since the incident

today a snotty manager pulls me up when I'm put my stuff on the conveyer belt and ask me if i should be in store.

 

 

I have him a confused look and he said I had been asked not to return.

This was not the case and I told him I wouldnt have come in if I had been told this.

He called me a list.

 

 

i had some nappies for my son and milk for him.

I asked if I could just pay then go.

He said no.

Then threatened me with the police.

 

 

After leaving the store my mama bear kicked in as i felt he was attacking my son.

I explained that they are the only store that sells the things my son needs

( he will only have certain milk nappies and food which I can get anywhere else and i dont drive)

he said he didnt care that it was my problem.

 

 

I explained about my son and that i had made of not taking him in (which is very hard for my son) and he threatened me again. i said he was discriminating against a disabled child and walked out.

 

Now I know they can ban whoever they like.

But im sat here terrified I'm going to get arrested and taken away from my son.

 

 

He seemed the type totty to be a ... and the security guard is a guy i went to school with who use to bully me.

 

 

If the product never left the store can they so anything?

And i paid both times. Also are they discriminating towards my son?

 

Im prone to panic attacks and I've had 7 today.

Are you asking "if you are likely to face any police action currently"?.

The answer to that is no: you've not committed any theft type offence and even if the store staff felt you might have previously : the police weren't called.

 

The threats of police for the most recent episode were likely related to them feeling you had been banned and thus were related to them believing you were entering the store as a trespasser where they might have called the police; in such a case the police would attend merely to ensure there was no breach of the peace.

 

Are you asking "can the store staff ban me, even if I need to go to that store to buy items for my disabled son"?

Yes, they can.

 

You can appeal to the store manager, or to head office, and/or kick up a storm on social media or the local press, but they can ban who they like, and they can state they have banned you for security reasons (rather than it being s case of discrimination).

 

Whilst you are trying to get this resolved : can you get those specific items (milk, nappies and goods) via a delivery service (either Tesco or a competitor), or get someone else to get them from the store, so the store staff can't say "well, she came in while she knew she was banned after being told to leave".

Thank you.

I understand the banning but the fact I wasn't told of it upsets me then called a liar infront of a shop full of people.

 

Also the security guard (who supposedly banned me) only told me i shouldn't bring my disabled son in if he was going to cause problems. I find that offensive.

 

I have found stores who will deliver the goods needed thank you. I shouldn't worry?

 

Are you asking "if you are likely to face any police action currently"?.

 

When you say currently does that mean they may do something in the future even if I dont return to Store?

I've considered it. But I dont need the hassle. I was going to ask to speak to head manager as I felt the guy I dealt with was on a power trip. Just feel sorry for my poor son who now can't enjoy his weekly trip to the onsite cafe (where the staff adore him) it's the only time we get to do something like that as he won't settle in any other cafe (needs to be familiar) and it took us a year to settle him visiting this one.

I don't think they'll do anything if you don't return to the store prior to getting the ban rescinded.

In terms of "I shouldn't worry?" ; in general, no, I don't think you have anything to worry about, but if there is still something specific bothering you, ask away & hopefully you'll be able to get some specific reassurance.

It's honestly just that i told the manager on my way out that i should involve the police for them discriminating against a disabled child that's worrying me..he seemed like the type to go out if his way to upset people. So allday I sat shaking hoping the police wouldn't turn up.

Well, you haven't involved the police, and they haven't (& the police now wouldn't likely get involved), so I hope you can be reassured.

I've tweeted this directly to the Tesco customer service department.

 

I'm especially concerned that the security person apparently knows you from your schooldays and that you didn't get on very well together there. That is the kind of circumstance where the security guard should properly have referred the matter to somebody else and not have gotten involved.

 

I hope Tesco's will take an interest in this once they see the tweet.
