Faecal bacteria found in ice in the UK's three leading coffee chains: Starbucks, Costa and Café Nero

After investigating the hygiene of drinks from the UK's biggest coffee shops, scientists have found that the ice in them can contain bacteria found in faeces.

A number of UK coffee shops are now under investigation, and more samples have been taken to labs for further study.

All three affected chains claim that hygiene is very important to them, and have said that appropriate actions will be taken to stop the bacteria growth.
