Detectives investigating how packs of Nurofen Plus were found to contain antipsychotic and anti-epileptic drugs are questioning a man in custody. Scotland Yard said the suspect, 30, from Bromley in south London, was arrested on Friday on suspicion of contamination of goods. He is being held in a south London police station. Reckitt Benckiser, the drug's manufacturer, recalled the product on August 26 and halted distribution after discovering five boxes contained other companies' medicines. It estimated some 250,000 packets were still in customers' hands.
