Liverpool Key worker Sheila Abbott found a novel way to cuddle her crying grandson, aged six.
When the youngest of her grandchildren, Mason, became inconsolable about not being able to see her, the supermarket worker donned a protective hazmat suit with facemask, and went to her daughter’s house to surprise the youngster.
The 60-year-old waited in the garden until a delighted Mason saw her and the pair enjoyed a long-awaited hug.
Sheila’s son Wayne contracted severe coronavirus symptoms and spent eight days in hospital. He is now on the mend.
