And finally… coffee-mate

More than 500kg of cocaine worth in excess of 50 million Swiss francs (£41m) has been found in a container of coffee bean bags bound for Nestle’s Nespresso factory in Romont in western Switzerland.

Police were told on Monday by Nespresso that staff had found a white substance while unloading the coffee that had arrived from Brazil.

“The substance in question did not come into contact with any of our products or production equipment used to make our products,” Nespresso said in a statement.

“As a police investigation is underway, we cannot share more details. We want to reassure consumers that all our products are safe to consume,” it added.
