Tesco and Asda apologise for selling 'mental patient' costumes

Halloween costumes deemed offensive to those with mental health issues have been taken off the shelves by Asda and Tesco. The supermarkets have apologised after receiving a number of complaints on social networking websites. One item was advertised as "mental patient fancy dress costume". Jonathan Clark heads up Premier Mind and Soul.

He told the News Hour he's horrified they made it to the shelves in the first place:

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
