An elderly woman used the free time afforded by the nationwide lockdown to finally clean her refrigerator.

Twitter user @GalWhoAteDurban responded:
"This is the single most disgusting thing I’ve ever come across. How do you not clean a fridge for over 25 years."

"These are the things that remind me why my gran never wanted me to eat at peoples houses."

"These are the types of people that have rats in their houses and warn people about it when they come over."
