Aldi shoppers have been telling friends about a new SpecialBuy item that’s ideal for those with young children.

The budget supermarket shared a picture of a children’s safety gate that’s lighter than the popular metal gates often bought to help protect children from falling down stairs.

The Mamia Retractable Mesh Safety Gate is on sale for £29.99.
