Nurses at a hospital were left "off their faces" after a granddad thanked them with a cake that was filled with cannabis.
On May 27th, police arrived at Warrington Hospital to discover that staff had eaten a red velvet cake that was full of the Class B drug. It had been brought to them as a thank you present for the care they had provided to the relative of an elderly man.
It is thought that the cake was made for his grandson's 18th birthday and he had no idea about the contents.
The hospital chiefs initially said that no-one had eaten the cake, but were then alter forced to admit that 'one member of staff' consumed some but 'did not experience any effects'.
That said, a member of staff who - for obvious reasons - doesn't want to give their name said that "three or four" of the nursing staff ate the cake and were left "off their faces" feeling "relaxed" afterwards.
The staff member said: "They were eating the cake and then the next minute the staff were all off their faces.
"It was brought in by a nice old man as a thank you, but it was full of funny stuff and had them all relaxed.
"There was no impact on the patients whatsoever, but they all knew something was wrong, so the police were called in."
Cheshire Police then confiscated the cake and tested it. They discovered that there was a load of cannabis in it. It is thought that the cake was baked for an 18th birthday party, but was brought to the hospital by the hapless granddad when he spotted that there was some left.
