An angry mother has slammed other parents for failing to socially distance at the gates of her children’s school – accusing the other parents of setting a bad example.
The unnamed parent was left feeling “physically sick” when confronted by scenes of non social distanced gathering at the gates of a school in Birmingham amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The angry mum made videos of fellow parents huddled together outside Ninestiles School on Thursday.
Footage showed parents lined up shoulder to shoulder at railings outside the school while others appeared to show no concern over standing close to others on the pavement.
While queues of traffic suggested walk to school advice had been ignored in favour of car rides at the education institution.
The mum opened up to BirminghamLive and explained how she wanted other parents to take greater care at the school gates and to take the risk of coronavirus seriously.
She said: "You just couldn't get through the crowd.
"I felt physically sick having to walk my child in-between all this.
"My son was so excited for his first day at secondary school but when we turned onto the street and saw the crowd, I could just tell he was terrified by it.
"I am so disappointed in the parents. In fact, I am absolutely disgusted."
She continued: "We are supposed to be a prime example to our children – but there was no social distancing whatsoever.
“The school has signs up and we even had letters sent out. Yet, still, parents took no notice.
"We have been in lockdown for four months so social distancing shouldn't really be hard now."

Government advice states: “The risk to children themselves of becoming severely ill from coronavirus (COVID-19) is very low and there are negative health impacts of being out of school.”
While kids are being encouraged to return to school in order to avoid detrimental loss of education time.
