Woman found not guilty thanks to sausage.


Woman found not guilty thanks to sausage.

A woman who was stopped by police because she was carrying a knife has been found not guilty as she was seen handling a sausage. Jane Bellas was stopped on the A6 near Penrith by police in January.

During her trial at Carlisle Crown Court the prosecution accepted that Mrs Bellas needed the knife for her job on a fast food stall at the town’s market. The vital piece of evidence in the case was the witness statement by a health inspector who saw the accused “tinkering with a generator there, while handling a sausage”.

Mrs Bellas was relived to be found not guilty and was given £10 to cover her travelling expenses. Reports that she has already spent the money on a big German Bratwurst remain unconfirmed.

  1. Is that the sausage that she was carrying? No wonder she was seen handling it.
