Police hunt couple who tried to eat 12 burgers in six minutes

in eating challenge then ‘refused to pay’

‘This is a matter of principle,’ restaurant owner says

Police are searching for two people who claimed to have eaten 12 burgers in six minutes before leaving a restaurant without paying their three-figure bill.

The pair are said to have asked to attempt an eating challenge run by a restaurant in Marlborough, Wiltshire on 5 February.

But staff at the Bite Me Burger restaurant – which offers customers 12 free burgers if they can finish them within six minutes – said they explained the pair could not take part in the challenge, as it had to be pre-booked and it was a “very busy” Saturday night.

The couple then ordered the dozen patties and ate them all, before refusing to pay – insisting that they had completed the challenge, staff alleged.

Marlborough Police said it is investigating the incident as possible theft, and issued CCTV images on Wednesday of a man and woman they wish to speak with.
