Half a million euros have been seized after being found in the back of a van in a Kent port.

Border Force officers stopped the van at Dover's Eastern Docks on Wednesday as it was heading for a ferry to France.

The cash was found behind panels at the rear of the British registered van and seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Two men from Liverpool were questioned by the Border Force and released on bail while investigations continue.
