A Stockport mum has joked about her ‘traumatic’ day at work – after her five-year-old son spotted an adult toy on the pavement. Bethany Keane was walking around Edgeley with her baby boy, Zack, yesterday (April 14) when he made the alarming discovery.
When Zack asked his mother what the unusual item was, Bethany had to think quickly. In the end, she chose to follow the age-old adage that honesty is the best policy.
“We had just returned from Alexandra Park and I was walking the dog. It was on Old Chapel Street,” the 28-year-old explained.

“My son asks ‘what is it?’. I was very honest with him, but told him it wasn’t for kids.
“He wanted to take it home because red is his favorite color. I said “absolutely not”!”
The professional dog walker, who has lived in Edgeley for three years, added: “My son was halfway through, I was walking a dog for a client so he had to come with me – otherwise I wouldn’t have had a like a traumatic day at work.
Like Bethany, her partner Ben, 31, also saw the fun side of discovery.
He added: “It’s probably not the first time I’ve seen one on the street. We are very proud to live in Edgeley.
A photo of the find caught attention on social media, with nearly 250 people reacting to it on Facebook.
