Huge crack cocaine haul seized in Aberdeen

Grampian Police have made one of the biggest single seizures of crack cocaine in Scotland.

Officers seized about £155,000 worth of the drug from a man in the Garthdee area of Aberdeen on Friday evening.

Police later said they were committed to making the north east of Scotland "a hostile area for those plying this vile trade".

A 46-year-old man from Aberdeen is to appear at the city's sheriff court on Monday in connection with the recovery.
