Irish Revenue Officers have recovered 26 industrial-sized fuel containers disguised as apple juice in Dublin.

About 25,000 litres of suspected laundered marked gas oil was seized at Dublin Port during a routine truck check on Monday evening.

The driver of the truck, who is in his mid-30s and from Northern Ireland, was attempting to board the ferry to Holyhead in Wales.

He was questioned and further investigations are ongoing.
