A POLICE investigation has been launched after a mother had hair extensions glued to her head with super strength glue.

Alexis Stanton, 38, was left with a bleeding scalp and had to shave all her hair off after the mistake was made.

The mother-of-two, from Gateshead, said a mobile beautician she had previously used for tanning came round to fit them but soon after the pain became unbearable.

Ms Stanton said: "I'm gobsmacked this has happened and I really wouldn't want this to happen to anybody else.

"I'm still in pain in my head. It's damaged my scalp. I've cried so much since it happened I don't think I've got any more tears left."

A police investigation has now been launched, as well as one by trading standards, as they look to establish what happened.

Anneliese Hutchinson from Gateshead Council, said: "Gateshead Trading Standards has received a complaint from Ms Stanton and we are investigating."

Ms Stanton was eventually forced to go to A&E to receive treatment and receive pain relief for her red raw scalp.

She said she had bought the treatment as a 38th birthday present to herself.

A Northumbria Police spokesman said: "We are carrying out inquiries in order to establish the circumstances and whether any criminal offences have been committed."
