Corrupt London bankers have resorted to new lows to earn a buck. Some are allegedly helping African poachers sell bush meat at London stores and restaurants.The BBC News reports that, “cane rats and ‘shocking’ quantities of illegal and ‘potentially unsafe’ meat have been sold to the public in east London, a BBC London undercover investigation has found.”
In one of the capital’s busiest food markets, secret filming has disclosed that butchers and food stores are selling large quantities of meat that disregard food safety laws.
According to the BBC, “West African and environmental health officer sources told the BBC the Widley Road Market, in Dalston, was a known hotbed of illicit meat activity, including sales of illegal ‘smokies,’ a delicacy made by charring sheep or goat with a blow torch.”
Paul Povey, one of the UK’s leading experts in meat hygiene and inspections and a member of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, who examined the meat for BBC, said, “this is shocking, I am just so shocked to see so much of it.”
