'Suggestive' carrot found in Ashford supermarket

Mark Eastham with the suggestively-shaped carrot bought from Sainsbury's in Ashford

Ashford father Mark Eastham couldn't resist buying this suggestively-shaped carrot from his local supermarket.

He was shopping at the Sainsbury’s store in Bybrook when he found the saucy item in a bag of odd-shaped veg.

Mark, from Kennington, who works on the Kentish Express production desk, said he couldn’t resist picking out the novelty veg for the sake of enjoying a “That’s Life moment,” a reference to the Esther Rantzen TV show which became famous in the 1980s for featuring rude, mis-shapen produce.

He has no intention of eating the carrot and said: “I’m going to keep it as an ornament, although it is starting to droop a bit already.”
