A haul of cocaine with an estimated value of £6 million has been seized by Border Force officers in Portsmouth.
They discovered the packages of cocaine in a refrigerated container which had been unloaded from the vessel ‘Star Quality’ at Flathouse Quay around 12pm on Friday 8 February.
The boat, which had come from Turbo, Columbia, via Antwerp, was carrying a load of bananas. The cocaine was found in 50 wrapped packages which had been hidden in the container. It is estimated the drugs, weighing around 60 kilos, could have had a
potential value of approximately £6 million when cut and sold on the street. No arrests have been made but investigations are ongoing.
