Ridiculous news story of the day!

Sainsbury's have banned their butchers from using knives in the interest of health and safety. Uhm okay !
A customer asked the butcher at his local Sainsbury's to remove the bone from a lamb joint- the butcher replied "My bosses won't let me." Another lovely health and safety issue
Customer John Wilkinso said "I couldn't believe my ears. He said he couldn't do it in case he cut himself and he wouldn't be insured."
The official quote from Sainsbury's is "Our colleagues who work on the meat counters are all trained to use knives, but some have not received all of the training to safely debone a lamb joint."
That would be another reason to be visiting your local butcher over the supermarket then.
