A nationwide plea to all Non League clubs was put out and contact was made to many, especially in the Cumberland and Linconshire areas. Even a suasage help line was set up, a nationwide hunt was instigated. Fields were crossed, "Walls" were climbed, no stone was left un turned in this national hunt for the missing sausages.
Now, due to an incident in Essex, the police have requested that the hunt be called off for fear of fueling further a local terrorist action. On Monday 18th April a man was innocently driving his car in South Woodham Ferrers when he was was struck on the nose by a frozen sausage.
In an interview last night, Superintendent Mash of the Frying Squad said, "We cannot stress enough how serious this incident is. It was obviously an act of a local terrorist group, possibly linked to the missing Braintree Sausages. The driver of the car was obviously a victim of a premeditated drive by sausaging. We do not know why the victim was attacked but we suspect it was a case of mistaken identity as at the time of the incident, he was wearing a blue shirt. We will be continuing our investigations in the Cressing Road area of Braintree and will be interviewing members of Braintree Football Club as part of our enquiries. We ask the general public to be extra vigilant, especially in the South Essex area. If you see anyone acting suspiciously and carrying a pack of sausages, we ask you not to callenge them but report them to your local police station. These men are dangerous and know their onions".
