Aldi Cuthbert cake ‘free’ as claim settled


ALDI’S Cuthbert the Caterpilla­r is now “free” after the firm settled a cake copyright row with M&S.

Marks & Spencer had accused the German discounter of copying its Colin the Caterpilla­r cake.

Both firms confirmed an agreement has been filed at the High Curt last week but said they could not release details of the “confidenti­al” deal.

M&S first launched the lawsuit against Aldi in April last year.

In May, Aldi started selling its cake again after making changes to its chocolate face design.

A spokesman for Aldi said: “Cuthbert is free and looking forward to seeing all his fans again soon.”

An M&S spokesman said: “We are very pleased with the outcome.”
