NASA reveals cocaine find

American space agency NASA is investigating how a bag of cocaine got into the hangar housing the space shuttle Discovery at the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida.

A spokesman said the bag, which contained a tiny amount of the drug, was found in a secure part of the hangar that is accessible by about 200 staff.

The agency said there was no evidence that any employee had been under the influence while working in the facility.

Discovery is being prepared for a mission in March.
