Pwllheli marina boat in £100m cocaine haul inquiry

A motorboat believed to be linked to the discovery of £100m of cocaine on a yacht off the Irish coast has been seized at a north Wales marina.

The yacht, Makayabella, was intercepted on Tuesday after it was tracked from the Caribbean and security sources said it had been destined for north Wales.

It is believed the 25ft vessel seized at Pwllheli Marina in Gwynedd was to be used as an accomplice to ferry the tonne of drugs to shore.
