About 34,000 cigarettes have been found in a layby in Dorset.

Police were called to the A35 at Bloxworth, near Wareham, at about 09:10 BST after they were discovered by a dog walker.

Tests are under way to "determine the contents" of the cigarettes and HM Revenue and Customs has been informed.

Dorset Police urged anyone who may have found other packets in "unusual circumstances" to contact them. No arrests have been made.
