And finally… snow joke

A Spanish TV station has apologised after a quiz show asked contestants to guess the street value of a gram of cocaine.

Atrapame Se Podes, or Catch Me if You Can, a popular show in Galicia, features topical questions and a prize pot of €25,000.

It asked contestants on Monday how much they thought a gram of the drug was worth: €6 or €60. They guessed correctly.

The TVG channel said: “It wasn’t the intention of the programme to disparage the serious problem of drug addiction.”
