‘Woolworths online f***ed up and sent us 17 kilos of carrots,’ the woman said in her video, before bursting out with laughter.

‘Does anyone eat carrots? What the f***.’

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Woolworths for comment.

The woman quickly saw the funny side as she confirmed she was giving away the root vegetables to her family and friends.

‘I have some family and friends taking some off my hands,’ she said.

The video has since been viewed more than 90,000 times, with dozens of people sharing similar stories about their online order mistakes.

‘I once thought I had ordered eight individual onions without realising it was actually eight kilos,’ a shopper wrote.

One mother said: ‘I ordered and paid for two sweet potatoes, I got 12,’ while another added: ‘I got sent 36 eggs, just wanted 12.’ 

Another woman said she purchased just five single bananas but ended up with 25 while one family revealed they received $45 worth of ginger for free. 

One pet owner said: ‘I ordered 20 cans of cat food and they sent me 168… at least my cats are well fed for a while.’

Many asked the woman whether she had made a mistake by accidentally adding 17 bags of carrots to her order but she insisted she only purchased two.

However, an employee defended the supermarket, claiming she’s noticed a number of customers mistakenly ordering more items than intended.

‘Trust me, I do online orders at Woolies. No one packs this by accident, but it’s relatively common that people order kilos of produce by mistakes,’ she commented on the video.

‘I had someone order 35 bags of mushrooms one time. When they came in to pick up, they said they only meant to order one.’

spencer davis dead at 81 welsh born musician dies in hospital during treatment for pneumonia

Tributes have poured in for musician Spencer Davis after the sixties music legend died while being treated for pneumonia aged 81.  

Spencer died in hospital on Monday, October 19, according to his agent. 

Bob Birk said: ‘I have represented him as his agent for over 30 years. He was a very good friend. 

‘He was a highly ethical, very talented, good hearted, extremely intelligent, generous man. He leaves behind his long time, domestic partner, June and three adult children. He will be missed.’

The talented instrumentalist, who was born in Wales, founded The Spencer Davis Group band.

Davis played alongside the Winwood brothers  – Muff Winwood, who played bass, and Steve Winwood on the vocals and keyboards- and drummer York. 

The group enjoyed a series of chart-topping hits in the mid-60s including Keep on Running, Gimme Some Lovin’ and I’m A Man. 

Their music is still played widely to this day, more than 50 years after it was recorded.

Gimme Some Lovin’ also featured in The Blues Brothers movie, directed by John Landis in 1960, and the famous Notting Hill rom com film.

Following the news of his death, tributes from fellow musicians, friends and fans of Davis have been posted online.

Radio presenter Suzy Wilde, who regarded the guitarist as one of her friends, wrote on Twitter that Davis was a ‘lovely, generous and kind man’ who would be sorely missed. 

She posted a picture of the two of them together and said: ‘I’m so very, very saddened to learn of the passing of Spencer Davis. He was such a lovely man, generous and kind, warm and funny, and will be much missed. 

‘RIP dear Spencer.’

Another fan posted: ‘RIP Spencer Davis, thanks for the music…’  

Davis was born in Swansea and was first introduced to music when an American rhythm and blues band played a rare gig in his hometown.

As a teenager, he was drawn to the music and launched his own band called The Saints, alongside Bill Perks – who later went on to become the bassist for the Rolling Stones and change his name to Bill Whyman.

Davis then moved to Birmingham and studied German at the University of Birmingham. 

It was here that he met his bandmates and formed The Spencer Davis Group in 1963 after the Welsh guitarist ran into the Winwood brothers as they performed at the Golden Eagle pub as the Muff Woody Jazz Band.

The brothers were only 14 at the time, but Davis recruited them to play alonside York, and the quartet formed the Rhythm and Blues Quartette, which performed regularly in the city. 

Legend amongst the group’s fanbase suggets the unusual band’s name stemmed from the fact that nobody in the group could think of a name for the band.

Some of the members did not want to be hounded for interviews it if was named after them – so they called it The Spencer Davis Group.

Their first breakthrough came with  a cover version of 1956’s ‘Dimples’ by blues singer-songwriter John Lee Hooker, and their fame spiralled.

They spent three weeks at No 1 (Keep on Running, December 1965 – one week; Somebody Help Me, March 1966 – two weeks), 19 weeks in the top ten and 55 weeks in the top 40.

Gimme Some Lovin’ peaked at No 2 in November, 1966 and I’m a Man reached No 9 in February, 1967.

The group disbanded in the late 1960s though they reunited on various tours in recent years, under Davis’ direction. 

Their reunion in 1973 resulted in the release of their albums Gluggo and Living in a Back Street. 

The band re-formed again in 2006, although only Davis and Hardin remained from the 1960s group line-up. 

Steve Winwood on the vocals and keyboards went on to enjoy further acclaim with Traffic and Blind Faith.

Davis later moved to Catalina Island, a small island off the coast of Southern California, where he lived until his death on Monday.

Brett Sutton chose NOT to hand over emails showing he knew about Victoria private security guards

brett sutton chose not to hand over emails showing he knew about victoria private security guards

Victoria’s top medical expert told his lawyers not to provide emails to an inquiry which appeared to show he was aware private security guards were being hired to work in the state’s doomed hotel quarantine program.  

Victorian Chief Medical Officer Brett Sutton had told the inquiry into the botched regime last month he did not know private security was even in the hotels until they were the site of COVID-19 outbreaks in May. 

Professor Sutton has now been asked to provide a new statement after the inquiry heard on Tuesday an email had emerged clearly showing he was told of the plan from March 27.

But his lawyers told the inquiry the top doctor did not feel he needed to provide the email chain because he had not read it in detail.

‘Professor Sutton instructed us he had not read the detail of the email at the time and that the evidence he gave to the Board was truthful at the time and remains so,’ the email presented to the inquiry from health department lawyers said.

‘In other words, Professor Sutton stands by the evidence which was provided honestly.’ 

The email chain had showed the chief medical officer copied into discussions about private security before the program officially kicked off.  

Tony Neal QC, the counsel assisting Victoria’s hotel quarantine inquiry, said the emails had not been produced by Victoria’s health department despite it being asked to hand over everything that related to the program. 

Quarantine breaches involving private security guards seeded 99 per cent of Victoria’s deadly second wave of COVID infections, the inquiry has heard. 

Mr Sutton was included on an email chain discussing the use of private security on the evening of March 27.

Another exchange included him between March 30 and July 2. 

Professor Sutton has now been asked to submit a second statement to the inquiry explaining his previous evidence that he was unaware private security had been used in hotels until much later. 

He has seven days to comply with the request. 

The revelations could lead to more people being recalled to the inquiry to explain previous evidence. 

March 27 email copying in Professor Brett Sutton

The inquiry heard the ‘penultimate email’ in the chain is from Mr Braedan Hogan, Deputy Director Strategy and Policy DHHS advises Commonwealth officials amongst other things that:

‘Private security has been contracted to provide security at the hotels with escalation arrangements to Vic Pol as needed’.

Professor Sutton is included in copy to this penultimate email and himself, by separate email, acknowledges its receipt with the words ‘thanks so much, Braedan’.

On its face this email has relevance to the time at which Professor Sutton had knowledge of the use of private security within the Hotel Quarantine Program. 

His evidence before the Inquiry was that he was unaware of it until media reports concerning the outbreak at the Rydges Hotel in May this year came to his attention.

Mr Neal said the emails covered ‘matters that occupied a very considerable amount of the board’s time’ during the inquiry.

‘You [retired judge Jennifer Coate, who is leading the inquiry] may consider it adds some weight in one direction or another to your deliberations as to who was in charge for the detention regime,’ he said.

When questioned about the email exchange last weekend, Professor Sutton told reporters the detail had ‘not registered’ with him.  

An email was copied into Professor Brett Sutton discussing the use of private security on March 27. He responded thanking the sender

The Age reported Professor Sutton claimed he had seen and responded to the email but that its reference to private security had not registered with him before he passed it on and that he had played no part in a decision by the Health Department to withhold the document from the inquiry.  

Last month, Professor Sutton had told the inquiry he believed private security was the ‘wrong cohort’ for the state’s bungled hotel quarantine scheme.  

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has apologised for his government’s disastrous decision to use private security guards at quarantine hotels. 

‘Mistakes have been made in this program and answers are required,’ Mr Andrews said. 

The bungle is estimated to be costing Victoria anywhere up to $400million a day with fears the current lockdown could run as high as $25billion. 

Dozens of security guards ended up catching coronavirus from quarantined returned travellers while working in the hotels. 

Shocking footage and photos emerged in August from an ABC Four Corners investigation of hotel quarantine guards asleep on the job in Melbourne.

Girl, 11, kills herself after man accused of raping her was set free on bail

girl 11 kills herself after man accused of raping her was set free on bail

An 11-year-old girl has taken her own life just weeks after the man accused of brutally raping her was freed on bail.   

The Year 6 student was airlifted to Perth Children’s Hospital from a rural community on Monday and died from her self-inflicted injuries the following day.  

Her alleged abuser was arrested in September and charged with sexual penetration of a child under 13 and indecent dealings with a child – but was released on bail the same day.   

The girl’s distraught mother told the West Australian her 11-year-old had been left traumatised after learning her alleged rapist was back in the community.

‘They let my baby down, the police, the courts… she had a lovely personality, was bubbly and outgoing.’ she said.

WA Police Minister Michelle Roberts said she was ‘concerned’ about the case.

‘The death of any child is always distressing… I will ask police for advice about this case, but I can add nothing more at this time, apart from extending my thoughts and prayers to the young girl and her family,’ she said.  

National Suicide Prevention and Trauma Recovery Project director, Gerry Georgatos, said the decision to grant the alleged predator bail was a mistake.

He said remand laws for those charged with child sex crimes need to be tightened. 

‘The police, too, need to do much more to assist particularly vulnerable impoverished families,’ he said. 

About 100 of the girl’s family members and loved ones arrived at the hospital to pay their respects on Tuesday.

Many of them slept in their cars overnight before saying their final farewell.

One of the girl’s aunts said she wanted the details of the case to be exposed because authorities need to be made accountable.

A Western Australian Police spokesman said the family members who have arrived at the hospital are being given access to support and counselling.

WA Department of Communities – the body responsible for investigating all child protection matters – said it is unable to comment on individual cases.

However its executive director of service delivery Lindsay Hale extended the department’s condolences to the girl’s grieving family. 

‘The death of any young person, regardless of circumstance, is a tragedy that is devastating in its impact on the families and communities involved,’ he said. 

Suicide is the leading cause of death for Indigenous children aged between five and 17, the Australian Bureau of Statistics 2018 Causes of Death report found.  

‘Over the five years from 2014 to 2018, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children accounted for close to a quarter of all child suicide deaths (85 of 357 deaths),’ the report said.

‘The age-specific death rate for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child suicide was 8.3 deaths per 100,000, compared to 2.1 per 100,000 for non-Indigenous children.’

The man charged with the girl’s sexual abuse is due to appear in Perth Magistrate’s Court before the end of this year.

If you or someone you know is in need of mental health support, you can call Lifeline on 13 11 14, Beyond Blue on 1300 224 636 or Kids Helpline on 1800 55 1800.
