COCAINE is so widely used that it has contaminated Britainís drinking water, according to scientific tests.
Traces of the illegal drug, in a form that has been broken down by the body, were found in treated drinking water despite intensive purification treatments by water companies.
Benzoylecgonine, the metabolised form of cocaine, was found in samples at four sites by the Drinking Water Inspectorate, along with ibuprofen, the commonly used anti-inflammatory, and carbamazepine, an anti-epileptic drug.
Its report concluded that the levels of the substances, passed into water via urine, were so small they were unlikely to have any direct effect on human health.
