More Drugs Discovered In Seized Lorry

A total of £3 million worth of illegal drugs have been recovered from a lorry that was stopped and seized by police in Belfast Harbour earlier this month.

During the initially vehicle stop police discovered cocaine and cannabis worth £1.8m. However, during further investigation an additional £1.2m worth of drugs was discovered in the floor of the lorry.

The PSNI have said that the find is one of the force's "biggest ever drug seizures".
