SHOCK AT GLASS DISCOVERY IN BREAD
A Haverhill mum of four got a big shock when she bit into a slice of bread and was left with a small chunk of glass in her mouth.
Trudy Farrer had bought the loaf of Kingsmill bread from the Sainsbury’s store in Haverhill.
Mrs Farrer took the loaf and piece of glass to the supermarket, who she said were very helpful, but other Kingsmill loaves were still left on sale.
Both Allied Bakeries, who made Kingsmill, and Sainsbury’s were investigating the incident.
FACTORY WORKERS GO ON STRIKE
Workers at Grampian Foods in Little Wratting were to hold a 24-hour strike in protest at changes to their pension.
Grampian said that only 215 workers out of total of 4,500 across all of its factories in Little Wratting, Scotland and Wales would be taking part in the strike and that disruption to customers would be minimal.
The strike was called after the Transport & General Workers Union (TGWU) balloted 739 members from five plants.
