Spanish police seize nine tons of cocaine in record breaking bust

Spanish police have seized a record nine tons of cocaine concealed in a shipment of bananas from Colombia. The stash was the largest ever found in a single shipping container in Europe. Street value is between £262m and £349m in the UK. Officials said the container was imported by a Colombian company on a ship coming from the Colombian port of Turbo.

The consignment easily surpassed the 6,000-kilo cocaine haul at Algeciras last November, which was the largest of its kind in Europe in 18 years.
