Drugs with an estimated street value of £7m have been found hidden in a lorry laden with ice cream.

Almost 200lbs (90kg) of cocaine and 138lbs (63kg) of heroin were found after a sniffer dog showed interest in the rear of a Dutch-registered lorry at the Port of Dover.

The drugs were discovered in the lorry's bodywork.

A 30-year-old man from the Netherlands was arrested and bailed for three months while inquiries continues.
