Shocking moment girl, 12, is filmed being sold a haul of 18-certificated DVDs at popular second-hand electronics store CeX

January 25, 2022

ELECTRONICS chain CeX is under fire after shocking footage emerged of a girl aged just 12 buying a haul of over-18 DVDs.

Filmed by her stepdad, the youngster is able to walk off with the stash of films — including violent gangster and horror movies — with no questions asked.

The video, obtained exclusively by The Sun, shows little Summa-Jane O'Moore paying for the haul of adult-only films without being asked her age.

It was taken by shocked stepdad Danny Freeman, who was suspicious the second-hand shop in Basingstoke, Hamps was brazenly selling over-18 films and games to kids.

The 27-year-old says he took extra care not to be seen with his stepdaughter so that staff would not realise she was buying the movies on his behalf.

Hiding behind a display, dad Danny was able to capture the moment schoolgirl Summa-Jane paid for her DVDs.

Her £4.50 purchase included slasher horror Satan's Little Helper, Brit gang flick St George's Day and foul-mouthed shoot-em-up Smokin' Aces.

She can be seen standing at the till in full view of the sales assistant as he scans in the cases, which clearly display the 18 certificate, before bagging them.

Appalled Danny told The Sun: "It has worried me knowing that my 12-year-old got served 18-plus DVDs.

"It's deeply upsetting because she could have been buying anything."

Summa-Jane even put family film Shrek The Third, rated U, among her pile of purchases to prompt the sales assistant to ask her age — but he says nothing.

Danny continued: "He should have noticed she is underage and not served her.

"But he didn't even ask anything about her age."

CeX, formerly known as Computer Exchange, has over 320 stores nationwide selling used DVDs, video games and electronics.

The Sun has contacted the retailer for comment.
