Emergency services were called to a Lincoln supermarket yesterday after a misaligned caster caused a pile up in the cakes and cereals aisle.
The incident happened after a shopping trolley veered wildly out of control and careered into a pyramid of individual fruit pies. Four more trolleys then piled into the back, causing mayhem and destruction, and resulting in serious tailbacks stretching as far back as the Crunchy Nut Cornflakes.
Lacerations from a Victoria cream sponge
A police spokesman revealed that one woman had been taken to hospital after suffering severe lacerations from a Victoria cream sponge, but that otherwise there had been no serious injuries.
Accident investigators are yet to make any official comment about the matter, although it is believed that a spillage of Frosties may have exacerbated the situation, following the discovery by forensic experts of a thin film of sugary coating on one of the lower shelves.
