Three men aged between 38 and 53 and a 47-year-old woman died in Stargard Szczecinski in northwest Poland after consuming alcohol probably containing methanol purchased at a local market, said police spokesman Przemyslaw Kimon, according to the PAP news agency.

Two more men died in Guiezno in the west of the country, police said, adding that a total of six people are hospitalised in the two locations.

In the neighbouring Czech Republic, a wave of some 30 deaths from lethal alcohol in September and October forced the country to temporarily ban domestic liquor sales and spirits exports.
