A woman from the United Kingdom was forced to have surgery to remove a wire bristle from her throat after eating a panini from the coffee shop chain Caffe Nero.
Katherine Willans, 34, inadvertently ingested the piece of wire after visiting a Caffe Nero shop in south London. The bristle had come from a brush that had been used to clean the contact grill used in the Putney store.
Willans had to go under general aesthetic to extract the wire, and she spent three days in a hospital.

Then, earlier today, it has come to light that they were the latest entity to be pilloried for not paying any corporation tax.
It’s been a “good news, bad news” weekend – with a fair bit of ‘missed news’ thrown in for good measure.
