Border Force officers are investigating after approximately seven kilos of heroin was seized at Dover’s Eastern Docks.
The drugs, with an estimated street value of £350,000, were discovered when officers stopped a British-registered lorry after it had arrived in Dover on a ferry from Dunkirk.
After the vehicle was scanned, a search was carried out and officers found the heroin concealed in the load of empty meat bins.
A 41-year-old man from Bourne, Lincolnshire has been bailed and enquiries by Border Force continue.
