A MOTHER has vowed never to set foot in Morrisons supermarket again after her one-year-old daughter was reprimanded for crying when she was hungry.
Gemma Jonas, 24, went for lunch with her daughter, Summer, in the Letchworth GC store's café on Tuesday.
Gemma, of West View, Letchworth GC, said: "Summer started getting loud because we had been waiting for 45 minutes for food and she was hungry.
"About five people complained but at the end of the day she's a baby - she's only one.
"A manager came over to sit with us. He asked if she had autism and when I said 'no' he said she had no excuse and shouldn't behave like that."
Gemma argued that there is nothing to occupy children now the play area has been removed but another manager was called to the café area.

Gemma said: "He was really rude to me. He didn't ask me to leave but was saying that kids were not welcome in there.
"He told me not to come back with my child because people want to enjoy a quiet cup of tea.
"At the end of the day I have been going in there sometimes five days a week and have never had a problem before.
"I'm going to put in a formal complaint to their head office.
"After the way they spoke to me, I'm not going to go in there ever again."
A spokesman for Morrisons said: "We did receive some complaints about a noisy child in the store. However, we found no cause for concern or action.
