iTunes agree to refund £1,300 bill racked up by Bristol boy
THE parents of a five-year-old boy who racked up a bill of more than £1,300 after a spending spree on iTunes are breathing a sigh of relief after being promised a refund.
Little Danny Kitchen managed to spend £1,329 after his dad Greg gave him the password for their iTunes account on the understanding the download was free.
But the following day mum Sharon Kitchen, 44, was horrified when she received 19 e-mails from iTunes, the download selling arm of computer giant Apple, for purchases of £69.99 for apps – extra software – to help play the game Zombie.
But Mr and Mrs Kitchen, of Warmley, were delighted when Apple said they would refund the accidental overspend.

Mrs Kitchen said: "I had an email saying under the circumstances they would pay the money back into our account. They explained what had happened and also gave us lots of information on how to protect against mistakes in the future.
"I have to say Apple have been excellent and knowing the money is coming back to us is a great relief."
