The Helston resident dubbed the “Angel of Woolwich” for her role in calming down two killers in London is now at the centre of an alleged racism row.

Ingrid Loyau-Kennett has again hit the headlines, this time for allegedly making racist claims in Helston Tesco pharmacy.

Police are now investigating the claims on the 49-year-old, who was escorted from the building by security guards last Friday.

It is understood Tesco has been asked to hand over CCTV footage.

A spokesperson for Tesco said: “We are aware of an incident which took place at our Helston store on Friday. Colleagues at the store are helping the police with their inquiries.”

Ms Loyau-Kennett came in for national praise last May, after being among the first on the scene following the murder of soldier Lee Rigby in a Woolwich street.
