Four held after 80m drugs seized
Four British men are under arrest in Ghana after officials seized 80m worth of cocaine destined for UK streets.

Ghanaian police and officials, acting after being passed intelligence, seized a tonne of the drug in a raid on a villa in Accra.

One German and two Ghanaians were also arrested following the raid - the culmination of a six-month intelligence operation led by UK Customs officers.

A Customs and Excise spokesman said intelligence had shown that all the cocaine was destined for Britain.
