A man has found £11,000 worth of cocaine inside a tub of Nesquik he bought in a supermarket.

The customer opened the lid expecting to just see milkshake powder but hidden amongst it was a 250g packet of the class A drug.

The man, who has not been named, is from Zaragoza in north-east Spain and reported the incident to the authorities, who confirmed the substance was cocaine.

He has threatened to sue the supermarket, which has not been named, after claims that national media mocked him, El Mundo reported.

CCTV has been analysed but nothing has been found, although investigators are sure the dealer inserted the cocaine while inside the supermarket.

The customer said the lid of the tub had been tampered with and police are now waiting on the results of fingerprints found on the packet.

The shopper’s lawyer has claimed his client is scared that he may be targeted by drug traffickers.

He has also suggested the customer has suffered "moral damage" because of the event.
