Women Find Pills Hidden Inside Takeaway Kebab
Two men have been arrested after three women found tablets hidden inside their takeaway kebab.
The three women, all in their 20s, visited Istanbul Grill in Bognor Regis, West Sussex, in the early hours of Sunday after a night out, but were shocked to discover the pills inside their food.
One of the women posted online to say her pal found the pills while she was eating her kebab with a fork - she spotted a 'blue capsule' in the kebab, prompting her to immediately spit out the food.
They then opened up the capsule and found 'four small white tablets' inside and called police.
The post went on to say: "She continued to eat the kebab and had a horrific taste in her mouth and spat out her food and there was a larger white tablet."
Police have spoken out to reassure members of the public that there is no suggestion any other takeaway restaurants are involved.
Chief Inspector Jon Carter, of Sussex Police, said: "I understand this incident may cause concern.
