A woman was left screaming in horror after opening up her Sainsbury's nectarines only to discover a horde of bugs wriggling inside.

Hannah Vettese, 27, a freelance writer, bought the fruits from a branch of Sainsbury’s in Harrow on May 30.

She said that she was horrified to discover the nectarines were "full of bugs" when she opened them up, My London reports.

She said: “I screamed when I cut into it and bugs came wriggling out and immediately tweeted about it to them.

“[Sainsbury’s] said they’d do something but so far nothing. I threw the packet away straight after too.”

The company has apologised and offered a refund

Hannah said on Twitter : "Cut my @sainsburys nectarines open to find it was full of bugs and have basically spent the last five minutes screaming."

The shocking pictures of the fruit appear to show multiple bugs in the centre of the nectarine.

After informing the supermarket giant via Twitter on May 30, the store have now rectified the issue and apologised for what happened.

A spokesperson for Sainsbury’s said: "We are sorry to hear of Hannah's experience and have offered a full refund.

"The quality of our products is very important and we are in touch with Hannah directly.

"We're also investigating to understand what's happened here."

It isn't the first time a shopper at the supermarket retailer found more than they were expecting after buying a product from a store.

In 2016 a customer shared an image of a 'large insect' nestled inside a bag of spinach, which they said came from the same brand as the retailer.

And in 2015 a stunned student recorded a large locust he found crawling around inside his bag of Sainsbury's rocket salad.
