Sandwich shop chain Pret A Manger has withdrawn a new "Virgin Mary" brand of crisps following religious complaints.

The firm, with about 350 shops in the UK, launched the spicy tomato crisps - based on the non-alcoholic version of a Bloody Mary cocktail - last week.

This prompted complaints, including from Catholic groups, that it was an offensive reference to Jesus's mother.

When you set out to offend people don't be surprised when you do.
