Disgusted of Market Harborough

They've gone too far this time:

Killjoy officials have said a town bakery can no longer use the famous title Harborough Cheesecake.

The delicacy has been made in the town since the 19th century but now Leicestershire Trading Standards has said the name is misleading and cannot be used.

Jim Knights (55), manager of Wesses Bakery in The Square, received a letter saying the title broke Food Labelling Regulations. The maximum fine for a breach is £5,000.

Read more in the excellent Harborough Mail while I take to the barricades. I wonder if they have this trouble with Bombay duck?
