Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE - by Kirsty Parkin

A MOTHER was hor­ri­fied when she opened what looked like a can of worms to feed her baby.

Heinz Cream of Tomato Soup is one of sev­en­month-old Oliver Matthews’ favourite meals.

But mum Re­becca White, 29, of Earlsworth Road, Ash­ford, says she could not stom­ach it again af­ter mak­ing an un­wel­come find in the tin.

“There was masses of what looked like a slug, worms or snake skin in it,” she said.

Crea­ture

“About half the tin was full of it and it made me heave.

“It cer­tainly looked like a crea­ture of some kind.”

The slimy sam­ple was col­lected by en­vi­ron­men­tal health of­fi­cers for anal­y­sis and has been sent away for fur­ther tests.

“To think I was that close to giv­ing that to my baby,” said Miss White.

“He is on fin­ger food at the mo­ment and he likes to dip his bread in the soup.

“I gave him beans and sausages in­stead and he was quite happy!”
