Border officials have seized cocaine estimated to have a street value of £17m at Tilbury docks in Essex.  The drugs, weighing 370lb (168kg), were found inside seven holdalls which had been placed on top of legitimate cargo of tin alloys in two containers.

The containers arrived from Senegal and were bound for Belgium. Mark Kennedy, Border Force officer at Tilbury, said: “This will have severely damaged the illegal business of those involved.”
