Possible cheese gift hamper fan receives unusual present
Published on 18/05/2010

A husband recently received an unusual edible present from his wife, it has been revealed.

Jim Green, who may well be a fan of cheese gift hampers given his spouse's choice of offering, was handed an eight-pound round of the dairy product, the Mirror reports.

He left the UK with his wife and travelled to New Zealand, but misses the cheeses Britain has to offer.

So, in a bid to bring him a taste of home, his loving other half picked up a large piece of Lancashire Crumbly while visiting relatives in Preston.

However, Ms Green was unable to take the conventional route back to the southern hemisphere as a result of transport disruption caused by the volcanic ash cloud.

Determined not to waste her present, she took a detour via road and rail to Sweden, from where she was able to fly to New Zealand.

She stated: "Jim was ecstatic when I turned up with it - he hates inferior New Zealand cheese."

The erupting volcano in Iceland has caused problems for people travelling to and from many parts of Europe over recent weeks.
