One would think that the Spanish police already had enough on their plates to tackle crime, but they seem to have put that aside to take Tesco to task for a ‘heretical’ paella sandwich.

The Guardia Civil have accused the British supermarket giant of creating a health risk by using their country’s traditional rice dish as a sandwich filling.

To commemorate International Paella Day this week, officials tweeted an image with the caption: ‘The “paella sandwich” for some is heresy, for others a violent attack on good taste and could even threaten health. We are waiting for your formal complaints.’

An outraged Spaniard responded: ‘This is an insult and a lack of respect for a Spanish dish, for a community in Spain, for all Valencians.’

Another added: ‘These things only happen in England.’

In fact, the paella sandwich was created ten years ago as part of a journalistic stunt, but it seems the Spanish never forgot the perceived attack.

Paella is a rice dish from the Valencia region of Spain, usually served with meat, seafood, and vegetables.

In 2016, Jamie Oliver was given a pot roast after the TV chef included chorizo ​​in a paella recipe.

Responses from angry Spaniards at the time included: ‘Remove the chorizo. We don’t negotiate with terrorists’, and ‘Why don’t you make some chicken nuggets with your own fingers?’
