Two charged after cannabis find
Two men have appeared in court after cannabis with an estimated street value of several hundred thousand pounds was found hidden in a truck in Birmingham.

West Midlands Police Proactive Crime Team said they seized what is believed to be between 60-100kg (136-220 lbs) of cannabis on Saturday.

Officers stopped the vehicle coming from a port in the south of England and searched it in a yard in the city.

The men are accused of conspiring to supply controlled drugs.

The pair appeared before magistrates in Solihull on Saturday and were remanded in custody.

West Midlands Police said the arrests were the result of an intelligence led operation.

The drugs are being forensically examined and dependent upon weight are believed to be worth between 300,000 to 500,000.
