A company that uses sniffer dogs to find drugs in workplaces, has seen an increase in the number of employees caught with "P".

Elite Dog Services, which is run by former police officers, says it has caught more than 40 workers with P in a variety of workplaces, an increase of 150% in the past 12 months.

The company's director, Bruce Howat, says some employees have been getting fixes during their coffee breaks, from mobile P labs in vehicles stationed in work carparks.

Mr Howat says mobile labs are toxic and highly explosive.
