A vegetarian woman in Somerset had an unpleasant dinner time surprise in her bag of Tesco salad - in amongst the healthy leaves was the carcass of a dead bird.

Julie Flynn, a primary school teacher in her thirties from the town of Brimscombe near Bristol, was horrified to find the skeletal remains of a bird in her bag of Tesco rocket salad.

Her partner Paul Streeter told Bristol 24-7 “I couldn’t believe my eyes. It was horrific. Julia was seconds away from eating it,”

“The bird was emaciated and about four inches long. At first Julia thought it was a leaf and tried to separate it with her fork. Then she just screamed and went to be sick."

The pair headed straight to the store to complain but were at first offered compensation in the form of clubcard points from the supermarket chain. After the couple lodged a formal complaint a spokesman from Tesco has since said "We are in contact with the customer and have apologised.”
