Police have confirmed that an employee of Lidl has been arrested in the ongoing investigation into the London Tube bomb attack. ‘Initially we thought it was a lone wolf but now it transpires that the bomber may have had assistance, namely the provision of disposable bags at a discounted price of 5p,’ said the Chief Inspector heading up the enquiry.
Concerns have been raised about the ability of the disposable Lidl bags to withstand an explosion, with experts noting that currently no British Army ordnance is transported in Lidl bags ‘for that very reason.’ The new Lidl Bag for Life, at 9p, in contrast, is widely recognised as being strong enough for eggs and a standard size bag of potatoes.’
It is understood that the man who sold the bag also asked the bomber if he wanted cash back. ‘Money laundering is a vital element of the terrorist process, so it’s likely he’ll be charged with that offence too,’ said the detective.
