Six sheep heads seized from Edmonton supermarket

This Is Local London: Six sheep heads were discovered at an Edmonton supermarket Six sheep heads were discovered at an Edmonton supermarket

Six sheep heads have been seized after they were discovered at an Edmonton supermarket.

The gruesome heads are believed to be more than four years old and still had the teeth attached.

The bizarre discovery was made on a routine check by Enfield Borough Council on Tuesday, February 25 and officers will now investigate it.

Enfield Council’s cabinet member for environment, Councillor Chris Bond, said: “There are very good reasons why we have strict controls in place regarding food safety associated with meat and its incredibly irresponsible of this trader to flout these regulations.

“We take this sort of behaviour incredibly seriously and take a very dim view of people who simply cannot be bothered to take the proper legal precautions to protect the public from exposure to a potentially fatal disease.

“The business in question had no records of when and where they purchased these heads, which is incredibly concerning because anyone buying and ultimately eating them doesn’t have the faintest idea of what they are eating.

"It is a legal requirement for all businesses to ensure they have documentation for all food they are supplied with and that reputable suppliers are used.”
