Shoppers in Shropshire have been left feeling ill after they bought Co-op doughnuts that had been accidentally tainted by cleaning fluid.

The company has apologised for what it called "an isolated issue", after disinfectant was left for too long on baking trays which were then used to cook the snacks.

A spokesperson for the Co-operative Food said: "We are committed to offering consistently high quality products and service and, we are sorry that this product fell short of those expectations.

"The matter has been thoroughly investigated and an isolated issue regarding the correct cleaning process for our oven trays was identified. This has now been addressed.”

Paul McGreary, Shropshire Council’s head of business support and regulatory services, confirmed that the Council was looking into the incident.

He said: “Shropshire Council is investigating this case, and that investigation is ongoing; therefore, we can’t comment any further.”

Mr Justice Wilkie said in sentencing: "You watched her die in circumstances where you could have saved her - and doing so was a central part of your pleasure...[You] then treated her body with contempt, dumping her in a remote area."

Continuing to address Jamie Reynolds, who stood head bowed and with his hands clasped behind his back, he said: "This is not a marginal or borderline case. I am in no doubt the seriousness of your offending, so a whole-of-life term is the starting point."

"I take very seriously the conclusion of (psychiatrist) Prof Paul Peckitt that you have the potential to become a serial killer," he added.
