The supermarket company Kwik Save as ordered to pay more than pounds 7,000 in fines and costs for selling meat pies, quiches and pasta that were past their sell-by date.

An assistant manager at Kwik Save in Coleford Gloucestershire, tried to hide some of the out of date sausage and onion pies as trading standards officers checked the fresh food refrigerator, the town's magistrates were told.

The prosecution claimed the company later produced bogus and fabricated documents to try to prove that regular checks had been made. The company pleaded guilty.
