Shopkeepers urged by police not to sell baked beans to children due to new TikTok trend

PCSO Michelle Owens said: "It has come to the attention of the police that a new trend has started by groups of youths called 'beaning'.

"This involves youths throwing the contents of a can of beans over properties, very similar to the trend of throwing eggs at properties"

A distant relative of mine "beaned" several churches in London decades ago. She was later sectioned. It's nothing new anyway.

They come in all kinds of flavours now I believe the baked beans. Chilli or curry ones could I daresay be pretty lethal.
