Supermarket changes parent-and-child car parking sign to ensure it is ‘gender neutral’

Parents have hit out at a supermarket after they were unable to park in a designated parking bay while an attendant painted the space to make it “gender neutral”.

Many were dumbfounded after the Aldi in Dunstable, Beds, painted over the figure in the sign’s skirt in order to be more inclusive to male and non-gender-conforming parents.
