KwaZulu-Natal - A large consignment of illegal alcoholic drinks have been seized by KwaZulu-Natal police.

Police spokesman Vincent Mdunge said officers pulled over a car travelling to Harding on the South Coast.

When the officers searched a trailer being towed by the car, they discovered large boxes of concocted Smirnoff bottles.

Their initial findings reported that the alcoholic volume in the substance was far above the limit set for alcoholic beverages. 

Mdunge said there was a very realy possibility that people who consumed the alcohol would die.

Two men have been arrested and are expected to appear in the Scottburgh magistrate's court today.

Police have meanwhile warned the public to buy alcohol only from licensed traders. 

Watch: Police spokesman Vincent Mdunge comments further on the illegal alcohol bust.
