A bank has been ordered to cover a man's £23,400 (€33,058) lap dancing bill.

A Polish court ruled the man had been drugged and so could not be held responsible for his actions.

They ordered Norwegian bank Sparebank 1 to cover the massive spend at the Polish lap dance bar.

The court heard that the Norwegian man only realised how much he had spent when he woke up the following morning and checked his bank balance, the London Independent reports.

He contacted local police and reported his drinks to have been spiked.

“Unfortunately that was the next day so there wasn’t a lot we could do, but we did take blood and urine samples and passed them on for toxicology tests,” Anna Piórkowska from the district prosecutor’s office told the Gazeta Wyborcza newspaper.

“But alas as it was so late after the alleged incident took place and they didn’t show anything.”

CCTV footage examined later showed a barman slip a substance into the man's drink during the night.

The reason for this was never explained.

The investigation was dropped over the lack of evidence as opposed to the perception a crime had not taken place, Piórkowska said.
