Plaster Found In Man's Wrap, Bought From Bretton Caterers, In Peterborough

A man got a "disgusting" surprise when he took a bite into his wrap and discovered that he was chewing not ham, but a plaster.

The man, called 'Leon' on Twitter, began eating the cheese and ham wrap when he made the shocking discovery, The Peterborough Telegraph reports.

He said: "I thought, ‘that’s a bit chewy for ham’ then I took a plaster out. I was shocked. It’s disgusting - every time I think about it the worse it is."

The Peterborough man discovered the used finger plaster in the wrap he bought from Bretton Caterers, in Peterborough, the local paper reports.

After he made unfortunate discovery, he contacted Bretton Caterers of Fairweather Court, Peterborough, who reportedly offered him £25 as compensation or £40 in store credit.

Not satisfied with the offer, Leon proceeded to post this on Twitter:

Tim Asplin, co-owner of Bretton Caterers, told the local paper that he apologised for what happened, adding: "We are truly, truly sorry. We are really gutted."

Peterborough City Council said they received a complaint about the caterers and carried out a formal visit. Additional hygiene measures have been put in place.

Bretton Caterers currently has a food hygiene rating of 5 - the highest a company can receive. It was last inspected in November last year.
