Isle of Wight drug smuggling: Why no trace of cocaine?

Five men from the Isle of Wight are currently serving a total of 104 years in prison for smuggling cocaine, but they maintain they have done nothing wrong.

Police did not find any trace of the drugs when they searched their fishing boat - even though the damp cocaine inside the bags suggested, according to lawyer Emily Bolton, there would have been a leak.

She tells Jim Reed there should have been a "weak cocaine soup" on board.

The Victoria Derbyshire programme is broadcast on weekdays from 09:00-11:00 on BBC Two and the BBC News Channel.
