A PREGNANT woman was set upon by a gang in Charlton's Asda supermarket last week.

Terrie-Lee Wells was shopping with her boyfriend in the Bugsby's Way store at 10.30pm on August 7 when she was set upon in the pasta aisle by a group of up to seven teenage boys and girls.

The 18-year-old, who is four months pregnant with her second child, said the gang - who she had encountered before - branded her a "fat c***" and threatened that they would "get me one day".

She said: "I've had nothing but grief from them.

"They started giving me all the mouth, all the lip and everything, and they then chased after me and hit me.

"I must have been hit about seven or eight times in my face and I got thrown into the shelves. My boyfriend got knocked to the floor."

Miss Wells says her boyfriend's 50-year-old mother June McKeogh, who was helping with the shopping, was also attacked and punched during the incident as she tried to protect the pair.

She said: "Afterwards the staff just let the people go who attacked me.

"I phoned them about the CCTV and they said it doesn't work in that aisle."

Greenwich police have confirmed they were called to an allegation of assault at the supermarket. Anyone with information should call Detective Constable Husna Nessa on 020 8284 7734 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

A spokesman for Asda said: "Our colleagues at the Charlton store acted swiftly to defuse the situation and are supportive of the police in their investigations"
