Hand sanitiser stations are a vital way of helping to stop the spread of COVID-19 and they can be found dotted around all over the place – including inside shops and on the high street.
But some people in South Sheilds, Tyneside, have been smashing up hand sanitiser stations before drinking the contents.
Most hand sanitisers have a high-concentration of alcohol in them. So high, you could risk yourself serious harm if you ingest the stuff.
But the risk of damaging your internal organs did not stop three men as they emptied the contents of a hand sanitiser station into milkshake bottles in Hebburn, according to the Metro.
A local Councillor, Pay Hat, raised the issue in a post shared on social media.
“Hand sanitising stations at the Nook Shopping Centre have been vandalised.
“Out of the 14 hand sanitising stations placed at the Nook, seven have been vandalised beyond repair.
