Three women and a man have fallen ill after eating pig's liver, possibly poisoned by the banned asthma drug, Clenbuterol, which is used to make pork lean.

Two women, aged 30 and 31, from Tin Shui Wai, and a 23-year-old woman and a man, aged 26, from Tuen Mun developed palpitations, nausea, dizziness and flushing. The cases - if confirmed - would bring the total number of people affected to 11.
