Flying Sausage Hits Car

There's not a lot to say about this story, and it happened in Chelmsford, which isn't strictly London, but it's close enough and we couldn't resist.

Flying food doesn't figure large in the list of motoring hazards, but one driver is nursing a bruised nose after an encounter with a frozen sausage in Essex.

Dave Holton, the paramedic who was called to the scene, said he had never seen anything like it in 30 years with the ambulance service.

"I feel very sorry for him - it must have been an incredibly lucky or unlucky shot to get the sausage through a moving car window. I have never seen or heard of anything like this before."

Police are treating the incident as an assault, which just goes to show throwing sausages is pretty rash. But throwing bacon would be rasher.
