Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

THE mys­tery sub­stance could be mould, ac­cord­ing to Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil’s en­vi­ron­men­tal health de­part­ment.

En­vi­ron­men­tal health man­ager Sheila Dav­i­son said: “Our in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on-go­ing.

“Ini­tial ex­am­i­na­tion sug­gests this may be a build up of mould that has formed due to air get­ting into the tin fol­low­ing dam­age to one of the tin seams. “It is not be­lieved that the for­eign ob­ject is a slug. “We can­not com­ment on what ac­tion, if any, may be taken un­til our in­ves­ti­ga­tions are com­plete.

“This can take some time as we need to give the man­u­fac­turer op­por­tu­nity to ex­am­ine the for­eign ob­ject and help de­ter­mine the cause.

“Our dis­cus­sions with the man­u­fac­turer so far in­di­cate this is an iso­lated case.”
