At Peterborough Magistrates’ Court yesterday (Wednesday), Pizza Express admitted serving a pizza containing a screw to a customer on April 6, last year.

The restaurant also admitted failing to ensure dough trays were kept in good repair as there was evidence of loose and missing screws and brackets.

Magistrates fined Pizza Express £4,000 for each charge as well as a £120 victim surcharge and £2,889.68 costs, leaving it with a total bill of £11,009.68.

A Pizza Express spokesman said: “We have rigorous controls in place and set ourselves very high standards for the safety of our food, which is why this is extremely rare. We have apologised to our guest and taken extra measures to prevent this happening again.”
