Needles sticking out from Melbourne train seat causes concern

Anthony Artusa was travelling on the City Loop train through Melbourne on Metro Trains when he apparently sat down on a seat with what he estimated were 20 needles sticking out.

In a tweet, Mr Artusa said: "Word of warning when travelling on @metrotrains. Had a lovely surprise this morning when I sat on a seat with around 20 needles sticking out of it. #NeedlesofMelbourne

Victoria Police and Metro Trains responded to the tweet, stating they were interested in hearing more, and now the train company has said they are looking into it.

Needles found in Melbourne grapes by pregnant woman

Shams Alsubaiy says she pricked her finger when she reached into the bag, bought at a Woolworths supermarket, on New Year's Day.

"When we cut it open there was a needle stuck through it," her partner Skender Hasa told 9 News.

They decided to cut open all the grapes left in the bag, and found a second needle.

"I was just shocked, scared. I thought this was all over and done with," said Mr Hasa.

Police are investigating, and Woolworths told 9 News it was working with them to find out how it happened.
