Wendy Birch was briefly knocked out by the heavy base of the bottle which became a flying missile after blowing when it fell to the floor from another customer's basket in a Tesco store on Saturday.

Now the 65-year-old grandmother who suffered a broken nose and cuts is calling for better safety precautions to be taken to prevent a similar incident occurring.

Mrs Birch was diagnosed with concussion by her GP who told her it could take weeks to clear.

And she has an appointment a cranial osteopath who will examine her skull for fractures.

She added: "I'm sill muddle headed as as result of the concussion and have been very groggy since."

Very likely

I am surprised she has to wait for an appointment to get checked for fractures; when I took a nasty knock to the head in the gym last year, I was taken to A&E and was immediately checked for a skull fracture, I didn't have to wait for a specialist appointment.

it'll be a specialist lawyer she's waiting on, most likely.

p.s. lol @ getting knocked-out by flying champers in Tescos
