A mum says she was left with glass all over her and her two children
She said she heard the glass crack before it fell to the ground.
Pictures show multiple shards of glass sprinkled on her children’s buggy after the pane apparently broke above their heads.
Her three three kids, an eight-weeks-old girl, two and six years old, were covered in glass after the shocking event.
She told The Sun: “We heard the cracking of glass above us then suddenly it all caved in.
“My baby was covered in glass in her pram and I feared for her life.
“We took cover in a nearby cafe as more glass started to fall.
“The children are traumatised by the whole thing, makes me worried to go back there.
“I had to sweep off all the shards of glass off my children when after we ran back to the car.
“The staff were unhelpful and the manager eventually came along.
“They were really rude and weren’t sympathetic in any way.
“They just asked if anyone was hurt then telling us we needed to get out as soon as possible.”

Lots of bits of glass went into her young daughter’s buggy
The family were on a shopping trip at the Marble Place Shopping Centre in Southport when the incident took place.
Savills UK, who leases/owns the centre, and Marble Place have yet to comment.
Earlier this year 12 retailers were dragged into the “exploding” patio table scandal as pressure mounted for a nationwide recall.
The Sun revealed how the glass tables from Argos and Asda had been shattering — leaving dangerous shards strewn across owners’ gardens.
