Elderly woman trapped in supermarket for New Year


Talk about crappy New year. An elderly French woman spent the dawn of 2013 locked in a supermarket in France, after she visited the bathroom at closing time.

The BBC reports the 73-year-old woman visited the ladies at the store in Roubaix near Lille. But when she came out she found the shop locked up and deserted.

French media say she set off the alarm repeatedly and spent the night wandering the aisles, but nobody came. A member of staff found her on Tuesday morning.

She had tried to get some sleep in the Intermarche supermarket's staff office . There is no suggestion that she helped herself to any food or drink.
