A customer who bought chocolate Nesquik and discovered cocaine amongst the powder in the box is set to sue the supermarket who sold it.

A 250g packet of the class A drug had been hidden inside the milkshake box in Zaragoza, Spain. It was valued by police at £11,000, according to iNews.

The man has now announced that he will sue the supermarket, partly because of the attention the story has received in Spain.

Lawyer Francisco Javier Acín told newspaper El Mundo the man had suffered "moral damage" and has been worried about retaliation by drug traffickers.

The customer first noticed there was a problem with the product when he returned home and saw that the lid had been opened and called the police when he found what was inside.

Spain’s national police force has now opened an investigation into the matter, and have confirmed the tub was intact when leaving the factory, so was tampered with at the supermarket.

Although officers have analysed CCTV, this has provided few leads, as cameras were not pointing in the direction of the milkshake aisle.
