Workers at a Chinese company have been forced to gobble down live earthworms as punishment after failing to achieve their sales goals, according to reports.

Social media footage uploaded by a self-proclaimed employee shows a staff member holding the wiggling bug in her palms as another worker wolfed it down with water while covering her mouth in disgust.

The whistle-blower told reporters that other punishments included eating live pond loaches or cleaning the office toilets.
