And finally… half-baked

A massive haul of suspected drugs seized by airport security turned out to be cake mix for a vegan bakery, police have said.

An employee of vegan pizzeria Purezza was transporting the white powder in 25 blue bags and was held up while waiting for tests to be completed.

Security staff at Gatwick Airport called British Transport Police, who confirmed the employee’s story after “a number of inquiries and tests”.

A spokesperson added: “They were soon reunited with the owner, who has promised officers and staff a slice of cake in return.”
