Unsafe and out-of-date food was allegedly placed for sale on the shelves of a supermarket giant's Preston store.

WM Morrison Supermarkets PLC is due to appear before magistrates today to answer two charges brought under the Food Safety and Hygiene (England) Regulations 2013 after a Trading Standards probe at its Mariner's Way store at Preston Docks.

Food producers and manufacturers have a legal obligation to include either a best before or use-by date on their food.
