Mum-of-two Sarah Hoare, 34, said: “I was surprised to see a vape display being installed, but more shocking was the position of this display, at the end of the children’s toy aisle.

“I couldn’t believe my eyes.

“It was worse when my son asked me about it.

“I find it ironic the confectionery display has been moved to accommodate this display of vape products.

“It seems to target children using this premium space.”

Morrisons apologised for the gaffe at its Wrexham store, saying staff had put toys on those shelves by mistake.

A spokesperson for the company said: “Toys were put onto these shelves by mistake and were then quickly removed.

“We apologise to our customers for this error.”
