Butchers Banned From Using Knives [WTF]

From the utterly ridiculous file:

A butcher at Sainsbury's was banned from using knives - because of health and safety, it was claimed today.

Shopper John Wilkinson was shocked when a meat counter worker at the supermarket said he could not de-bone a joint of lamb.

The businessman claims he was told: 'My bosses won't let me - in case I cut myself and I'm not insured.'

Luckily this happened in Britain, not America, but we're slowly moving in that direction.

I understand the store's concerns over liability, but this has gone too far.
