Drugs haul seized at ferry port

Ecstasy and cocaine worth an estimated 260,000 have been found hidden in a vehicle at a ferry port in Kent.

The Lithuanian registered car arrived at Dover's Eastern Docks on Thursday, on a ship from Calais in France.

During a search of the vehicle, UK Border Agency (UKBA) officers discovered about 12kg (26.4lb) of ecstasy and 0.5kg (1.1lb) of cocaine.

A 24-year-old Lithuanian man has been charged with attempting to smuggle drugs into the UK.
