share close

A man suspected of contaminating food with a syringe at three supermarkets in west London has been arrested, a council has said.

He is alleged to have visited Tesco, Waitrose and Sainsbury’s on Fulham Palace Road and injected foodstuffs using a number of syringes.

Police were called just before 8pm after the man was reported to be shouting at people in the street, Hammersmith & Fulham Council said.

He has been taken into custody accused of trying to cause public harm or anxiety.

The supermarkets have been closed and crime scenes are in place.

The contaminated items are believed to be processed meat and microwaveable products, according to the council.

It is not yet known how many items were affected or with that substance.
