Two men and a woman have been charged after police seized what they believe is the largest ever heroin haul in NI.

The Class A drugs recovered in Londonderry on Saturday, including the heroin, had an estimated street value of £1.5m.

A man, 41, from Londonderry has been charged with possession with intent to supply. A man, 28, and a woman, 24, from Dublin have also been charged.

They are due to appear at Magherafelt Magistrates' Court on Monday.

The drugs were discovered after police stopped cars on the Foyle bridge at about 0100 BST on Saturday.
