A group of diners who refused to pay for their meal in a Manchester restaurant because they claimed they found a RAZOR BLADE in their pizza have been exposed as a fraud.
Greater Manchester Police say the four people were exposed after CCTV footage showed that they planted the blade themselves in their meal before reporting it to staff.

Although the Piccadilly Gardens venue has not been revealed, commenters on Twitter revealed that it’s not uncommon in the hospitality business.
One added that she knew someone who “used to eat half a burger and then put a hair in the other half to get a replacement”.
There was little sympathy from the public, with the general feeling summed up by one tweeter: “Scumbags, throw the book at them”.
