An investigation has been launched after it emerged that hundreds of bottles of booze had disappeared from the evidence room of a police headquarters in Zaragoza.

Police had seized 2,061 bottles during a raid two years ago on a Chinese supermarket which was suspected of selling stolen liquor.

But during an audit of evidence it was discovered that 359 bottles, which included Moët & Chandon champagne and high end brands of whisky, gin and rum, were missing.

A local report in the Heraldo de Aragón newspaper suggested that earlier this month a police chief had been touring round local police stations handing out bottles to colleagues.

But no arrests have yet been made.
