Bill Form, from Border Force, said: "These were two quite sophisticated concealments, but our officers are trained to expect the unexpected.
"The trade in illegal drugs is big business and the criminals who engage in this activity are always looking to find new ways to evade detection. It is our job to stay one step ahead of them and to put a stop to this terrible trade that has such a destructive impact on the lives of so many."
