Police in Invercargill say a suspected methamphetamine laboratory is the first one found in the city.

Members of the Armed Offenders Squad found items that could be used to manufacture the drug, also known as "P", in a motel in Tay Street on Tuesday.

Two Christchurch men, aged 39 and 44, are being questioned and police say it is likely they will face charges.

Specialist staff will conduct a thorough scene examination on Wednesday.
