A "shook up" mum of five shared her thanks after a kind stranger rushed to help her son in Wilkos.

Wallasey woman Clare Jones, 38, was with her kids in the homeware store at 3.30pm, just before shops closed on Sunday.

She told her children to stay put for a moment while she grabbed an item from the shelves in the Wallasey Wilkos.

But the mum of five felt "panicked" when she heard her four-year-old son's scream, recognising it as a cry of pain.

The mum of five told the ECHO: "He ran to me and blood was just pouring out of his nose."

She added: "I've never seen so much blood as that day in Wilkinsons.

"I thought it wasn't going to stop. I think it was 20 minutes or so it was bleeding."

Her daughter had sparked a nosebleed when she swung a doll through the air and whacked her brother Sam's nose.

Clare, who hates blood and panics at the sight, usually relies on her boyfriend to handle the red mess.

But she was by herself dealing with her similarly squeamish son, until a kind stranger popped up to help.

The store's first aid responder arrived to cool the situation with calm words and a bunch of tissues.

Clare told the ECHO: "We went through so many tissues in that shop."

With the bleeding stopped, the family made their way home, and little Sam "got a Selection box for his bravery as well".

But the shock stayed with Clare even once they were home.

Her hands shook so much that sugar fell off the spoon as she made a cup of tea to calm herself.

Clare plans to take a thank you card into the store to show how grateful she is for the help the Wilkos staff offered in her time of need.

She told the ECHO: "Some people wouldn't have helped, would they? Not everyone's there to help you out.

"But they were very, very helpful.

"I'm just very happy, and I'm just glad my son is okay."
