image for Liquorice Allsorts to be banned!
Psychedelic sweeties

The nations favorite sweets Liquorice Allsorts are set to be controversially banned under new rulings.

Top boffins have announced that the popular plant derived confection is being used by drug barons, in order to produce heroin.

In a bizarre twist of chemistry, it would appear that the criminal world have devised a process to convert liquorice into a class "A" drug.

Police forces up and down the country have reacted with alarm at this shocking news and are moving to ban liquorice altogether.

Spokesman for Bassett's sweets, Bertie Bassett, has scoffed at any claims implicating liquorice Allsorts with hard drugs:

"It's just a harmless sweet consumed by children! I eat them all the time, and have never 'Gangster tripped' once!"

The UK's dentist's however have welcomed the news.
