Passenger’s “disgusting” find in airport bread roll
A traveller was left disgusted after finding two “weird looking” flies squished into his breakfast roll.
The bagel was bought at Terminal 1 inside Dublin Airport by Martin Warde, an Irish comedian.
Mr Warde was rushing to catch a bus, and when he opened his meal he was met with a startling discovery.
“Just bought this breakfast roll in the shop at terminal 1 at @DublinAirport,” the comedian wrote in a post to social media.
“Why are there two weird looking insects stuck to it? F***ing disgusting.”

When asked if he took the roll back to be replaced or refunded, he explained: “I was rushing to get the 9.15 am citylink (bus) to Galway and I was buying it at 9.13am.
“I rushed to the bus before opening the packet.”
While social media users were disgusted by the discovery, many reacted with humour.
“Free extra protein,” one person wrote.
Another comment read: “It’s one of your five a day.”
A user guessed the bugs ended up on the bagel because “someone used the bread roll to whack the flies dead as they walked along the countertop.”
Mr Warde later kidded, saying that he “ate them” as he was on a “protein rich diet.”
A spokesperson for the Dublin Airport told The Sun they had apologised for the “unacceptable experience that he had at one of the food outlets here.”
“We have raised the issue with the company that operates the outlet in question, and it has also apologised to Mr Warde directly.
“The company has confirmed that the issue did not arise within its Dublin Airport outlet, as its bread rolls are sourced externally.
“The company is investigating this incident with its supplier and will report back to Mr Warde and to Dublin Airport officials in due course.”
