The Royal Navy says it has seized its biggest haul of cocaine, estimating its street value at £240m ($380m).
The Portsmouth-based frigate HMS Iron Duke seized more than five-and-a-half tonnes of the drug from a 138ft fishing boat off the coast of Colombia.
The Royal Navy and US Coastguard jointly intercepted the boat after it was spotted by a navy helicopter crew.
Armed Forces Minister Bill Rammell praised the operation for “damaging the trade in this vile substance”.
