Three men arrested after NI’s “biggest ever” drugs seizure

Three men from Tyrone, Derry and Armagh have been arrested following what's been described as the biggest ever drug seizure in Northern Ireland.

The PSNI and the National Crime Agency recovered 600 kilos of cannabis from a lorry in Templepatrick, Co Antrim, early yesterday morning. The haul has an estimated street value of between 10 and 12 million pounds.

The men detained are in their 30s and 60s.

Searches also took place at two locations in Counties Derry and Tyrone.
