Horror after 'tongue-eating parasite found in Tesco fish'

A supermarket customer has spoken of his horror after finding what looks like a rare tongue-eating parasite, writes Claire McNeilly

Rick Beattie (32), from Holywood, bought the sea bass from Tesco at Knocknagoney last week.

"I was preparing it for dinner and noticed something hanging from its mouth.

"When I pulled it out, I saw that it was a small creature with an egg-sac attached to it. It was absolutely disgusting," he said

A Tesco spokeswoman said its customer service team was now dealing with the matter.
