£160m cocaine haul off Plymouth coast

Six, including a UK man were busted off the coast of Plymouth after cops seized two tonnes (2,000kg) of cocaine.
The British man and 5 Nicaraguans were arrested on the Jamaican-flagged Kahu, 80 miles off the coast, in international waters north of Guernsey. Cops estimate the street value of the drugs is over £160m.
The former New Zealand Navy patrol ship was transformed into a luxury yacht in 2012.

The Kahu had been listed on the market for a year and was sold for 1.5m euros.
