A lorry concealing cocaine with a street value of £8.5m was apprehended by the UK Border Agency at Portsmouth last week (7 March).

Arriving from St Malo, France, on a roll-on, roll-off service, officials discovered 85kg of drugs hidden on board the truck.

A 42-year-old man from Worcestershire has been arrested in connection with seizure and bailed until 10 July.

Andy Lumb, border force assistant director at Portsmouth, says: “As this detection shows, our officers are on constant alert, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to keep class A drugs and other banned substances out of the UK.”
