MANDATORY BYLINE – Stuart Campbell/Mercury Press
A milk-mad mum drinks up to ten pints a day of the white stuff.
Foster carer Sandra Heap, 46, from Southport, Merseyside, spends £25-a-week on the calcium favourite downing it as she watches TV. Her addiction sees Sandra turn down wine on nights out plumping instead for a glass of milk and in restaurants she has staff baffled always ordering the drink with her meal. Milk drank by Sandra has to full-fat and at least a week before it’s sell-by date and she refuses to let any of her family drink her milk – buying them instead semi-skimmed. Sandra admits when she once worked in a primary school she used to ask the pupils if they would prefer juice instead of the cartons of milk – so she could glug them. SEE MERCURY COPY
