Sarah Metcalfe was left an abusive note
I think they must have seen me leaving my car with a smile on my face so assumed I wasn’t disabled or in pain.
She said: “I don’t like to claim benefits, I like to just try and get on with it, but the pain was so bad on this occasion that I was forced to used a disabled bay to limit the walk.
“There were around 40 disabled parking bays and most were free. “I wouldn’t have been able to go in if I hadn’t used it – my ankles had become so weak that I was worried I’d go over on them. But I was enjoying a day out with my son so was determined to make it in.
“It was Jack who had to find the note. It floored him – he couldn’t believe someone could say that but use a piece of paper to say it so there can be no comeback, it’s just horrible.”

“I consider myself quite a strong person, but this could have gone on someone’s car who couldn’t handle such nasty personal abuse.
“Whoever did it, didn’t think about the terrible effect it could have had on someone.
“I know it will be very hard for the person who did it to have the courage to come forward, but if you are reading this and know it was you, please do.”
A Tesco spokesman said: “We were shocked to hear about this incident and try hard to tackle discrimination.
