A man has been taken to hospital after reportedly cutting off his big toe with bolt cutters and eating it.

Police attended the Wilko store, previously known as Wilkinson’s, in Sheffield city centre on Sunday morning.

They were called following reports of concern for a man inside the premises, the Press Association reported.

A spokesman for South Yorkshire Police said: “Upon officer arrival, the man was taken to hospital with injuries to his foot, where he remains.

“There are not believed to be any other parties involved and the incident is not being investigated as a crime.”

An eyewitness told the Sheffield Star: “A man went into Wilkinson’s Haymarket, went upstairs to the electrical aisle, picked up some bolt cutters, chopped his big toe off and stood eating it.

“The aisle was taped off until police and forensics went.”

The Huffington Post UK has contacted Wilko for comment.
