A woman smashed hundreds of bottles of alcohol on the floor of an Aldi supermarket in a five-minute wrecking rampage.

She stayed silent as she dragged thousands of pounds worth of bottles of wine, beers and spirits from the shelves of the branch in Stevenage, Hertfordshire on Wednesday afternoon.

It is believed the woman, who was wearing a hoodie, backpack and mustard trousers, ended up slipping on the mess she created and cut her right hand.

Footage shows the woman raising one hand in the air as she continues breaking several bottles on the floor.

Television presenter Lee Clark, 50, who witnessed the woman in action told Sun Online she smashed at least 500 bottles during the “incredibly dangerous” rampage.

He added: “It was extraordinary – I’ve never seen anything like that before in my life.

“She didn’t say a word the whole time and had a very vacant look in her face.

“A man told her to calm down so she threw a bottle of gin which hit him in the leg.”

A security guard managed to detain the woman and dragged her out of the shop.

She was later arrested by police at around 2.30pm.

“Police were called at around 2.30 pm on Wednesday to report an incident at the Aldi supermarket in Fairlands Way, Stevenage,” a Hertfordshire Police spokeswoman said.

“It was reported that several bottles of alcohol had been thrown onto the floor and smashed.

“Officers attended and a woman has been arrested.”
