£3,700,000 worth of drugs found in the back of a lorry at Dover Port.

Border officers stopped a British registered lorry on 24 February at Dover‘s Eastern Docks. 

After questioning the driver they searched the load of oil drums and found approximately 27 kilos of heroin, 180 kilos of Amphetamine, 10 kilos of ecstasy and 160 kilos of cannabis.  The estimated street value of the drugs is £3,700,000.

The driver and a second man have been granted bail without charge until August whilst the UK Border Agency looks into what happened.

Border Officers use hi-tech search equipment to combat immigration crime and detect banned and restricted goods that smugglers attempt to bring into Kent.
