Three held over £10m Finchley heroin haul

Three men have been arrested after police in north London seized a stash of heroin worth almost £10m.

The 42kg (93lb) haul was found by detectives tracking a Mercedes car as it stopped in Tarling Road, Finchley.

The driver removed two black holdalls from his vehicle and put them in a white van which he had met along with an Audi car on Sunday, police said.

Officers arrested three men, aged 33, 36, and 48, who are alleged to have been involved in the exchange.

The holdalls were found to contain about 40kg (88lb) of heroin, while another two kilos of the Class A drug and £10,000 in cash was discovered following a subsequent search of an address in north London.
