Cocaine with an estimated street value of £2.4m has been seized by Border Force officers at an Essex port after being hidden in a cargo of nuts.

About 46kg of the Class A drug was found in two black holdalls at Tilbury that had been shipped in a container from Panama, officials said.

Mark Kennedy from Border Force said the find would have significantly disrupted the criminals' work.

Anyone with information has been asked to get in touch.
