Harrogate District Hospital's A&E department has apparently dealt with two avocado-related injuries in one day.

A woman took to social media on Sunday after being treated for a wound to her hand.

It happened when she tried to remove the stone from an avocado.

The unlucky lady said: "Apparently there has been one other person attend today for the exact same reason. Whoever you are, you are not alone."

Someone else commented that it's a "typically Harrogate" injury.
