Dodgy pate ruins wedding

Dodgy chicken pate has landed a bride and groom and dozens of their weddings guests in the sick bay after they all came down with food poisoning.

Nicola and Alex Hamill spent £16,000 on their big day at Letchworth Hall Hotel in Hertfordshire but undercooked chicken pate offered as part of a lavish £5,550 wedding breakfast soured the day for everyone.

Instead of enjoying their honeymoon, the Hamills had to spend the first five days of the Las Vegas trip being sick in their hotel room.

Nicola (29) and Alex (32) - plus nearly half of their 118 guests - are now intent on suing the hotel for loss of earnings after its bosses pleaded guilty to two charges of poor food hygiene practice at Herford Magistrate's Court last month.
