Tesco scraps deliveries to home despite driving past it
The supermarket's vans continue on to Altnaharra in the Highlands, 14 miles away.
Tesco has come under fire for cancelling deliveries to a customer in the Highlands while driving past his home to reach a hamlet that is farther away.
The supermarket took Strathnaver off its delivery route, saying the postcode was outwith its catchment area.
Despite this, it continues to deliver groceries to Altnaharra, 14 miles to the south.
Steve Bernard, 61, relied on the supermarket's delivery service as he cares for his 90-year-old mother.
His closest Tesco store is in Thurso, about 45 miles away.
After the supermarket service was cancelled Mr Bernard noticed a Tesco lorry driving past his home and approached the driver.
'The Tesco customer care is like a farcical pantomime'Steve Bernard
He said: "You can imagine my shock when a Tesco delivery van later passed my house.
"I stopped the van and asked the driver where he had been delivering. He happily told me he'd just made a drop at Altnaharra.
"The Tesco customer care is like a farcical pantomime."
He added: "They have officially stopped delivering here so I am left with a 90-mile round trip, which is very difficult because of my caring commitment to my mother."
A Tesco spokesman said: "Strathnaver is not in the catchment and deliveries here have stopped.
"We have, by exception, tried to help out the customer and made some deliveries to him in Strathnaver - but this isn't possible on a regular or ongoing basis."
The spokesman was unable to explain why the vans were still travelling through the community to get to Altnaharra.
