Dutch lorry driver accused of Dover drugs-smuggling bid

A Dutch lorry driver has been remanded in custody, accused of attempting to smuggle drugs with a street value of nearly £6m through the port of Dover.

Otto Landman, from Eesveen, was arrested on 30 June after UK Border Agency staff searched a lorry carrying frozen chips at the Eastern Docks.

The agency said officers found 100kg of heroin, 15kg of cocaine and 250kg of cannabis in the vehicle.

Landman denied attempted smuggling and was remanded in custody until 7 July.
