Tennis fans warned of strawberry pesticides at Wimbledon

Tennis fans enjoying strawberries at Wimbledon have been warned to take heed after a Government study showed nine out of 10 of the fruit nationwide was covered in pesticides.

The samples under scrutiny were taken from national retailers and pick-your-own farms, and almost all of them contained traces of chemicals.

Although the compounds were not dangerous, anti-pesticide campaigners said the results left a "sour taste" in the mouth.

Hmm, not a good advertisement for strawbs is it?
