Gatwick Airport “drug bust” turns out to be vegan cake ingredients
British Transport Police has (plant-based) egg on their face after a suspected drug bust turned out to be vegan cake ingredients.
The Sussex branch Tweeted that they found the suspicious bags at Gatwick Airport but it turns out pizza restaurant Purezza just had some baking to do.
The BTP said:
“@BTPSussex huge drugs bust at Gatwick airport. In collaboration with @ukhomeoffice powders tested and discovered to be vegan cake ingredients. Please label your foods and bring samples of cakes next time you visit. #cakefine”
Purezza responded identifying themselves as the cake bakers, offering a slice of cake to officers when they are next in the Brighton branch of the restaurant.
BTP confirmed their recipe would be “safe with us.”
This actually happened.
