Cocaine disguised as charcoal and wooden pallets seized

Spanish police say they have seized dozens of pallets made out of 1.4 tonnes of compressed cocaine that was made to look like wood.

Spanish customs officials say in recent years they have found cocaine in breast implants, a wig and even a plaster cast encasing a man's broken leg.

Spain is seen as the main entry point in Europe for drug smugglers from South America.
