Bush Meat - Not for veggies

Sheep's head meat from Iran, dried pork pot noodles from Japan and yoghurt balls from Lebanon. These are just some of the illegal culinary delights seized by environmental health officers in recent months.
Councillor Will Brooks, cabinet member for environment and transport, said: "Sheep's head meat from Iran may be a delicacy for some, but it's illegal to bring it into the country for consumption on British dinner tables.
Many specialty shops may not know they are breaking the law by bringing in food from countries outside the EU to provide their customers with a taste of home.
Despite border controls, some illegal imports find their way onto the shelves as a result of deliberate smuggling.

Har, har – bush tucker, anyone?
