Bananas and Blow

Drug smugglers appear to have made a major slip-up, after huge quantities of cocaine were delivered to supermarkets in Spain hidden in boxes of bananas.

Police were alerted after a shelf-stacker at a Lidl supermarket in Madrid found a brick of neatly wrapped cocaine under a bunch of the fruit on Saturday.

Searching other Lidl shops, police sniffer dogs reportedly found 25 such packets, worth several million euros.

The fruit had been shipped in from Ecuador and Ivory Coast.
