A large seizure of cannabis has been made at Heathrow airport.

The drugs were found in air freight containers of fruit and vegetables on board a flight from Ghana.

They were discovered on Monday.

It is thought to be the biggest seizure of cannabis made by Border Force officers at Heathrow in more than three years. The drugs had an estimated street value of approximately £4.3 million.

After being seized the cannabis was taken under armed escort to a secure location where it will now be stored until it is incinerated.
