British Keystone Kops blow up pesto sandwich after being called to investigate suspicious package
A bomb squad blew up a pesto sandwich after being called to investigate a suspicious package at London Bridge. Officers closed off a busy high street on Sunday afternoon after a brown bag was discovered at a bus stop close to The Shard and London Bridge train station.
After an investigation, police decided to execute a controlled explosion on the package, which splattered pesto and bread across shop windows. Eye witness Adam Smith had tried to walk through Borough High Street, south London, but was stopped at a police cordon.
'Standing at the bus stop chuckling to myself as I keep seeing more evidence of the sandwich explosion. 'There is pesto on the first floor windows.'
