A 30 year old man has been charged by police with contaminating packets of Nurofen Plus.

Thousands had to be recalled last month after five boxes were found to contain anti-epileptic and anti-psychotic drugs.

Christopher McGuire, of no fixed abode, was arrested on Friday and charged with one count of contamination of goods, and two counts of administering a noxious substance.

He will appear at City of Westminster Magistrates Court on Monday.
