Herne Bay: Mum Chloe Jones left underwhelmed by Asda Christmas tree

By Joe Wright

A mum has called on Asda to change the way it advertises its Christmas trees after finding one to be a shadow of how it is pictured on the box.

Chloe Jones and her family bought a 5ft pre-lit tree from the supermarket in Broadstairs as they looked forward to decorating their home.

But after adding the finishing touches to the festive tree at their house in Herne Bay, the family were left somewhat underwhelmed by the final product.

The disappointment, however, soon turned into hysterics and Mrs Jones, who is 40 weeks pregnant, said the laughter almost sent her into labour.

"I couldn't see through the tears," Mrs Jones said.

"On the box, the Christmas tree looks like one you would find stood proudly on display in a beautiful shop window.

"However, what you are actually getting is a Christmas tree that looks like it's had a hard night on the town.

"I think it is safe to say that maybe Asda should reconsider the photo they are currently using on the front of the box to save some disappointment."
