Sainsbury’s is to introduce a pork, smoky bacon and maple syrup sausage under its Taste the Difference range next summer. The flavour was dreamt up by shopper Jane Rubin (pictured, with husband Barry) who won a Sainsbury’s British Sausage Week Facebook competition. It will go into about 350 stores.

Rubin was presented with her award by comedian Al Murray, aka The Pub Landlord, during British Sausage Week on Monday (5 November).
