No-one likes to be judged while they eat, but imagine these two beady eyes staring back at you.

Mother Natalie Clarke had just served herself a tin of Princes tuna with a jacket potato, when she spotted this detached head peeking out of the fish dish.

Natalie, from Tyler Hill near Canterbury, had already taken a few bites of the tuna, served with jacket potato, when she noticed something distinctly odd about her dinner.

A crustacean or a shrimp maybe? Looks pretty beat up, too. Probably not harmful honestly, but definitely not tuna fish.

Does Princes process prawns as food? If so, perhaps they process the prawns and the tuna at the same plant and this prawn head just happened to get mixed up with the tuna.

I am not sure.. I  have only ever seen their tuna and salmon...  They do other things like ham and other meats ... But I tried looking up prawns and got no joy....   So I don't know

Princes don't process prawns but they do produce tinned shrimps in brine. (And very tasty they are too!)

nothing gross about eating a prawn. Of course it would be a surprise to anyone to see that it came from a tuna can :)

I had to look that up myself, actually. It's just another name for a baked potato. Maybe it's a British thing? Kind of like how they call flashlights 'torches' and elevators 'lifts'. Just minor semantics.

Okay where I come from, we don't eat the head of a prawn (or shrimp), so yeah that does look quite unappetising. :no:

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde
