A couple were left 'disgusted' after discovering cobwebs and a live maggot inside a packet of cereal which they had planned to feed to their 18-month-old daughter.

Sylvester Coleman, 22, and his partner Jade Kadolski, 21, from Oxborough, near Swaffham, purchased a packet of Tesco own brand 'crunchy cookie cereal' from the superstore on Brocks Road, Swaffham.

However, when they got home to open the packet of cereal they discovered something unexpected inside.

Mr Coleman said: 'When the cereal was opened we noticed there was cobwebs in it then later on when we were on the phone to customer services I noticed a maggot crawling up the back of it.

'It's just disgusting. We were at my sisters who also had another six children in the house. My partner opened it instead of the kids but if the kids opened it they would have just poured it straight out.
