A TODDLER was injured by an open razor apparently left in the sweet rack of a newsagent. McColl's says it is taking the incident at its Headley Drive branch on Saturday "very seriously" and has reported it to police. Jayne O'Connor's three-year-old daughter cut her finger after picking up the razor in the store. She told the Advertiser: "I just went down to the shop to get the newspaper and as I was paying by the counter my daughter handed me a disposable razor that had the cap off. "I asked where she had found it and she pointed to the shelf where the wrapped sweets were and said she had found it there. "The man behind the counter said he did not know where it had come from. It was not one that the shop sold." Ms O' Connor added that her daughter started crying when she walked out of the shop, before holding up her bleeding index finger. "It could be a complete accident but if is not I want them to be more careful," she continued. "What if it were a younger child?" A spokesman for McColl's said it was "extremely sorry" for the incident. She added: "We are taking the matter very seriously and have informed the police of the incident. "We have increased in-store monitoring and are reviewing CCTV footage to determine the cause."
