A Peeved Pensioner

Angry granny Mary Ingamells contacts press to complain about finding a piece of wood in a tin of Tesco carrots and peas; she can also still feel a piece of orange in her throat that was there when she was two

Friday was plainly a slow news day at the News & Star with The Cumberland News. Reporter Emma Walker was dispatched not to canvas the views of residents of Seaton, Cumbria worried about ‘Storm Dennis,’ but instead found herself with 82-year-old Mary Ingamells, a great-grandmother who “couldn’t believe her eyes” after finding a two-inch-long stick of wood amongst her tatties when she “went to have some carrot.”

 

Community minded Mrs Ingamells explained to interested readers of what she’d found in the Tesco tin of peas and carrots:

 

“I had a taste of my tatties and went to have some carrot, and thought, ‘what’s that?,’ and it was this great stick of wood in the pan!”

 

“I don’t care about getting compensation or any of that nonsense, I just want to make people more aware, and let them know this happened.”

 

“If a parent or grandparent had given the bowl of peas and carrots to a two-year-old and turned their back for just one second, the baby would have choked on it.”

 

“I’m not looking for money – the tins only cost 20-odd pence, so that’s not the issue at all… I just keep thinking what could have happened. I could have choked to death!”

 

In spite of Tesco apologising and offering her compensation, Mrs Ingamells felt the need to share another of her experiences. When she was two-years-old she choked on an orange segment. She ludicrously claims she “can still feel the orange in her throat.”
