Border Force officers are investigating after an estimated 107 kilos of cocaine and five kilos of heroin were seized at Dover’s Eastern Docks. The drugs, which have a street value running into millions of pounds, were discovered when officers stopped a Slovenian-registered lorry.
After questioning the driver officers, aided by a detector dog, searched the lorry and its load of metal and machinery. The drugs were found hidden in one of the trailer’s outside lockers.
