UK’s biggest ever haul of class A drugs as £512m of cocaine found in North Sea boat - Mirror Online
Three tonnes of cocaine worth £512million, the UK’s biggest class A drugs haul , were found on a boat seized in the North Sea.
The captain and first officer of tugboat MV Hamal were yesterday found guilty of drug trafficking.
It had left Turkey for Guyana in South America where drugs were loaded.
In April 2015, after a tip by French authorities, Royal Navy and Border Force vessels boarded the Hamal 100 miles off Aberdeen.
In port it took three days to find all the drugs.
