Ever feel like taking a break from your desk, but a cup of tea in the staff kitchen doesn't quite cut it?

A lolly factory in the UK has found the perfect way to help staff unwind during the workday - by installing a giant adult ball pit.

Swizzels in Stockport, near Manchester, told the Manchester Evening News research showed that play activities such as a ball pit can increase creativity and reduce anxiety.

Up to 15 staff members can be in the ball pit at once.
