Asda has spoken out about two mannequins that were purposefully placed in a sexual position by a prankster at its store in Greenhithe.

The display was discovered by a man shopping at the supermarket on Wednesday (March 9).

The mischievous pair

A female mannequin was spotted leaning over a railing, with her pants down, while a male counterpart stood behind her with his hands on her bum.

Staff at Asda were made aware of this and quickly put them back in their rightful places.

The fun and games are over...

An Asda spokesman said: “We appreciate a good joke as much as anyone else, but we are a family retailer and expect our mannequins to behave impeccably at all times.”

A mannequin display in Breitling’s store at Bluewater was described as "vile" by a mum-of-two last week.
