Berni - I still didn't know what it meant until you posted. So thanks Im sure that word will come in handy ...Not haha.

She said nobody in her work even knew what it meant - Apparently the guy is well..... You can probably insert your own words after seeing the poster with words like detritus haha!!

I said she should just write on the bottom 'Which section'

:D x

I have read enough detritus in accident reports in my time to know what detritus is ... ../.

btw ...I think it should have been the Food Hygiene Regulations 2006 (Reg 10)

Quality! Got to love it when people try it on.

Some people seem to think it is very wise and intelligent to include laws in what they are trying to achieve. Problem is when they get it wrong it makes them look more than foolish (adding to the issue they are numpties for stating said laws in the first place)! :roll: This bright spark goes one further ... 'Detritus' ... :|
