Shoppers in Northamptonshire are being warned about buying fake vodka after antifreeze was found in some bottles.

Trading Standards seized 60 bottles from shops across the county.

The poisonous substances were found in branded spirits called Arctic Ice Vodka and Drops Vodka.

The products contained harmful chemicals which are found in cleaning fluid and methanol which is used in antifreeze

Paul Maylan, from Trading Standards, said: “They are the sort of compounds that are related to alcohol, but the body can’t process them properly so they turn out to be far more toxic.”

The public is being asked to report any suspicious products to Trading Standards.
