Cops at­tended the Wilko bud­get home wears store in Hay­mar­ket, Sh­effield – pre­vi­ously known as Wilkin­son’s – at around 11.10am on Sun­day.

They were called af­ter re­ports of con­cern for a male cus­tomer in­side the shop.


A spokesman for South York­shire Po­lice said: “Upon of­fi­cer ar­rival, the man was taken to hos­pi­tal with in­juries to his foot, where he re­mains.

“There are not be­lieved to be any other par­ties in­volved and the in­ci­dent is not be­ing in­ves­ti­gated as a crime.”

An eye­wit­ness said: “A man went into Wilkin­son’s Hay­mar­ket, went up­stairs to the elec­tri­cal aisle, picked up some bolt cut­ters, chopped his big toe off and stood eat­ing it.”
