Three people are being questioned after 27 kilos of heroin were seized by police in Drogheda in the Republic of Ireland.

The drugs were found when police stopped an articulated truck on the MI in County Louth on Thursday evening.

They have an estimated street value of 4.05m euros (£3.19m).

A 40-year-old man and a 43-year-old woman were arrested at the scene. Another man, aged 40, was arrested in a follow-up search.

In a separate incident in Dublin, two men, aged 27 and 37, have been arrested after 32 kilos of cocaine worth an estimated 2.24m euros (£1.7m) were seized at a house in Stillorgan Road, Donnybrook, on Thursday evening.
