Family finds porn film inside brand new DVD player bought from Asda store in Bournemouth

Bournemouth Echo: HORROR: Gillian Scammell, who bought a new DVD player from Asda only to discover that it contained a gay porn video HORROR: Gillian Scammell, who bought a new DVD player from Asda only to discover that it contained a gay porn video

A mother was left horrified after her nine-year-old daughters found a hardcore porn movie inside their new DVD player.

After celebrating their ninth birthday on Friday, twins Charlotte and Madeline Scammell bought a Polaroid DVD player from the Asda store on St Pauls’ Road with their birthday money.

But after they returned home and went to watch their favourite movie, the youngsters discovered a gay porn film had been left inside the machine.

“Their birthday was on Friday and they wanted to get a DVD player,” explained the youngster’s mother Gillian Scammell.

“We went to Asda on Monday and purchased one for £20 and when we got home we set it up for them.

“They went to put in their Frozen DVD and came out asking ‘mum what’s this’?”

After discovering the disc the girls took it to their mother, who was horrified by what they found.

Mrs Scammell, of Beswick Avenue, Bournemouth, said: “I was disgusted. My husband and I were in complete shock. We’re just grateful they didn’t watch it.”

The 36-year-old is now calling on the superstore to improve security checks to ensure returned items are checked before being sold on.

“Even if people have purchased an item before it should be stated on the shelves saying it is second hand. But surely if someone had taken it back there are security checks in place to stop this type of thing from happening?

“I don’t know what procedures they have in place but whatever they are something has gone wrong,” she said.

A spokesman for Asda said an investigation had been launched to establish how the DVD ended up in the machine. In the meantime, as a gesture of good will, Asda has given Charlotte and Madeline a £20 voucher.

The spokesman added: “This is an isolated incident, but one which we are taking very seriously.

“We are currently conducting a full investigation into this matter and how it could have happened.

“We apologise to Mrs Scammell for any upset this may have caused.”

The mother obviously had a good look of the dvd then to know its content. Is she a expert in this field to know it was hardcore? Bit of another non story as usual. Now everyone will be wanting a free dvd with their 20 quid dvd player.

I bought a Polaroid DVD player from Asda in Bournemouth a few months ago and, guess what it had a disc in. In my case it was a comedy film certified 15, it remains in my collection. The players packaging was complete and sealed and I had no idea it was a return. But for £20, I did not think it worthy of complaint to the store!

I love these ' could have' stories. My children could have watched it. He could have been blinded. While finding the DVD is something that needs looking into as it is completely unacceptable, is it really news. They didn't watch it so let ASDA know so they can look into it. Stop running to the papers. Yesterday I cut my finger. If it had been two foot higher and three inches deeper I ' could have' died. There's a story.

"The spokesman added: 'This is an isolated incident, but one which we are taking very seriously.'"

Roughly translated: "Can we have our DVD back, please? The night-shift shelf stackers have nothing to watch"

Seriously, who lets 9-year-olds check out newly purchased electrical items without checking them, first, themselves? Especially an electrical item at a bargain basement price. It was probably just a customer return that no-one checked before putting it back on the shelf. It could have been an electrical item fitted with a faulty plug, or with unsafe wiring.

I once returned a microscope to Lidl because most of the parts were missing. Even though I told the girl on the checkout that it was incomplete I saw it back on the shelf before I left the shop.

I am seriously amazed at the ridiculous comments that have been posted about this story. I happen to know Mrs Scammell and she is not making a compensation claim. Although as the numerous comments on this site accuse her of doing so I have suggested she does.

The story had a number of elements, the fact the video found was a **** video was just one of them.
1) When buying a DVD from a reputable store as new you expect this to be the case - If I buy a laptop that is new I do not expect to find that it is reconditioned. I would have no issues if I had been informed of this at time of purchase.
2) Asda did not deal with the complaint correctly and the complainant was fobbed off by the store complaints dept hence the escalation.
3) Are Asda themselves being supplied with stock that is second hand/reconditioned? As a result of this story I would think twice about purchasing electrical items from Asda.

I don't ordinarily get involved in these discussions but seriously look at the trail of comments that have been made!

Attention seeker? No way
Who would not let 9 year olds load a DVD? They probably know how to operate it better than you.
This issue as happened before - read the comment about the comedy video. Asda need to review their processes and perhaps even the supplier to ensure this doesn't happen again.

And finally what if the girls had seen the DVD? Would those making the inane comments still make them? I guess they probably would and that just about sums them up

I'll be fair here - this isn't a case of 'my kid fell over on the bus and might have been injured, but he wasn't' - that sort of thing is more a lack of responsibility from the parent(s) in ensuring their child is told to find a seat while they pay/holding their hand.

In this case, there was something inside the product which should not have been there at all, whether it was a 9 year old looking at it or a 30 something had bought that player for their own use and in any instance, could have caused distress as they had not sought to be watching such material. Fortunately, they did not view the material on the DVD and there should be very little impact on the children from this.

However, as ASDA do not operate their own brand of DVD players, the fault will either lie with someone at their distribution centre (if it was opened between supply and sale) or with the maker themself. I would imagine the gift voucher at ASDA was a gesture of goodwill for the fact it happened in the first place and I would hope that they are reviewing their procedures behind the scenes, to see if they can establish at which point this disc ended up in the machine and to deal with this appropriately.

What is it with these people that run to the paper over the most trivial of things, i'm surprised she didn't say "they could have gone blind". Is it really such an issue that they feel the need to warn the rest of the public about it? There are things that happen to me and people I know every week that could easily be classed as a Echo so called newsworthy story but I just can't be bothered or want the attention.

As said before i'll bet her daughters friends parents aren't too impressed about it, now having to explain to their children why their friends mum is on the front of the paper and what hardcore gay p0rn is. They will probably get teased at school now too, all that just so their mum could have her 5 mins of fame, I hope she's very happy with herself!

To all those supporting this ridiculous story..

Why would someone want to publises both themselves and their children over something that is ultimately an error somewhere in the long chain of the millions of DVD players that are sold every year. What gain is there in running to the local rag and having your photo published if not for one's own self promotion and exposure or is this some kind of morality mission? I think not.

Sometime inn this complicated world we live in, MISTAKES are made.. why do so many people feel unsatisfied unless they can pin the blame on someone or make a drama out of things? Lots of little things SHOULDN'T happen in life but they do - that is life!

Get over it, move on and stop trying to whip up a flipping media frenzy, is ridiculous.

I am seriously amazed at the ridiculous comments that have been posted about this story. I happen to know Mrs Scammell and she is not making a compensation claim. Although as the numerous comments on this site accuse her of doing so I have suggested she does.

The story had a number of elements, the fact the video found was a **** video was just one of them.
1) When buying a DVD from a reputable store as new you expect this to be the case - If I buy a laptop that is new I do not expect to find that it is reconditioned. I would have no issues if I had been informed of this at time of purchase.
2) Asda did not deal with the complaint correctly and the complainant was fobbed off by the store complaints dept hence the escalation.
3) Are Asda themselves being supplied with stock that is second hand/reconditioned? As a result of this story I would think twice about purchasing electrical items from Asda.

I don't ordinarily get involved in these discussions but seriously look at the trail of comments that have been made!

Attention seeker? No way
Who would not let 9 year olds load a DVD? They probably know how to operate it better than you.
This issue as happened before - read the comment about the comedy video. Asda need to review their processes and perhaps even the supplier to ensure this doesn't happen again.

And finally what if the girls had seen the DVD? Would those making the inane comments still make them? I guess they probably would and that just about sums them up
well done for knowing her. It's a DVD so what. Your spill is rubbish and like most people she is doing this for publicity.

All she wants is money. How much time has been wasted contacting the echo? It's not a story, look at the comments, that should tell you that people think this is a nothing story and plain pointless on the echo's part.

Yes yes yes.... all very nice, but why did she take the story to the Echo? ATTENTION SEEKING!!! End of. This matter could and should have been dealt with without the need for the local press to be involved and for them to make a sensational headline out of it! The bottom line is that ASDA are perfectly capable of dealing with their supplier (or whoever was responsible in store) and ensuring it doesn't happen again.

I remember renting a Toy Story video and getting home to find Highlander in the case. That would not have been what I was expecting! But I would never have let a 9 year old unwrap and plug in a DVD player without my supervision, let along let them have one in their bedroom. I actually like to monitor what my kids do, or am I just old fashioned?
I would point out though that I have dealt with Asda complaints through their head office and they are NOT helpful.

Whilst I agree this story is not really news worthy I do feel t hat comments towards this last about her parenting skills are out of order. Its the same posters who state we molly coddle our kids who are now claiming she shouldn't have let a 9 year old operate a dvd player! Come on I think 9 years is a perfectly responsible age to press a few buttons and insert a disc and would it have been a different story if it were a 13 year old? No the fact remains that she has bought something she believed to be new and clearly it wasnt and that in my opinion is the only real story here. Big corporations selling second hand goods for full price is a con.

terry96 or whatever thou choose to name thy self
some of us have to work to pay thine benefit thou knowest
ask your carer to take you over the road it be a nice day.
So they finally found you suitable employment,the mind boggles as to what you might be doing.Actually terry96 has a certain ring to it so I may use that I have asked if I can be allowed to visit Bere to see you so fingers crossed :)
stay in bed terry there are no gay clubs near here for you
you will need more than your 12 fingers crossed
beware of the goats pete sorry I mean george
You're scared ! I'm a coming :)
