Three Brits have been arrested in West Yorkshire after around a tonne of cocaine worth up to £100 million was seized from a yacht by the Irish authorities.

The 62ft yacht, called Makayabella, was intercepted off the Irish coast last year with 41 bales of the drug on board.

The men, aged 31, 29 and 27, were arrested on suspicion of conspiring to import class A drugs at addresses in Ilkley and Leeds on Tuesday, the UK's National Crime Agency (NCA) said.

All three were questioned and have been bailed pending further inquiries until August 28.
