Man arrested over cocaine seizure in Portsmouth

A man has been arrested and questioned in connection with a cocaine seizure at Portsmouth container port.

About 4kg (8.8lbs) of the drug, with a potential street value of up to £200,000, was found in a container at the city's docks in August.

An investigation was launched and a man in his 50s was arrested in Peckham, south London, earlier.

The arrest comes after a UK Border Agency-led summer crackdown on suspected illegal activity.
