Man arrested after £1.3m cocaine seized

Drugs worth £1.3m were found by Border Officers after they seized 31 kilos at the Channel Tunnel entrance.

The cocaine was found in the early hours of Sunday morning when offices searched a Slovakian-registered lorry and its load of mixed goods.

Cocaine is a vile and destructive drug, which ruin the lives of users and the wider community.

“Border Force officers are on constant alert to keep illegal drugs and other banned substances out of the UK.”
