Newlyn's £20 million pound haul - but it's cocaine not cod!


Breaking news! The Border Agency have just released the news that 200kg of cocaine has been found aboard the yacht Windrose towed from the Scilklies into Newlyn over the weekend.

"Following a search of the yacht, Windrose, in Newlyn, a substantial quantity of cocaine, thought to be approximately 200 kilos, was discovered," a Border Force spokesman said. "It is estimated that if cut and sold in the UK the drugs could have had a potential street value of around £20 million. "The drugs have now been removed from the Windrose and taken to a secure location for further analysis. An investigation is ongoing."
