Police in the North have launched an investigation after apparent human waste was found in a shipment of drink cans at a Coca-Cola factory.
The Independent.ie report that a container of tins reportedly arrived from Germany into the plant in Lisburn, County Antrim last week.
Workers noticed a problem when the machines in the factory started clogging up. They then discovered that a number of the cans were filled with what looked like human waste.
"It was absolutely horrible, and the machines had to be turned off for about 15 hours to be cleaned," a source told the Independent.ie.
"It was unusual because normally the cans come from somewhere else in the UK, but this time they apparently came from Germany.
"The rumour is that some poor immigrants could have made that long journey in the lorry and that in their desperation were forced to use the cans instead of a toilet".
It's reported that the cans usually arrive at the factory without tops on, to be filled with coke before they are sealed and sold.
Coca-Cola say they are aware of the incident and are investigating, along with the PSNI.
