A trader selling legal highs containing potentially harmful chemicals has had his market pitch suspended.

A BBC investigation found the drug, called Pandora's Box, being sold at a market stall in Worcester.

Analysis by a forensic toxicologist showed it contained not only detergent, but also chemicals known to cause heart attacks.

The company which owns the market said Neil Bowie had potentially breached the terms and conditions of his contract.

LSD promotions said Mr Bowie had the right to appeal against the suspension.

Mr Bowie said that his stall offered only items that were "totally legal to sell" and available elsewhere in the city.
