Cocaine with an estimated street value of about £7m has been seized by gardai in Dublin.

About 14 kg of the drug was found in a house in Terenure in the south of the city.

Two handguns along with a drug mixing factory consisting of mixing agents, blenders and bags were also discovered at the property.

No arrests were made. The find is part of an intelligence operation targeting organised crime in south Dublin.

The searches follow the seizure of £1.6m of cocaine in Tallaght last week.

A man and a woman arrested following that seizure are still being questioned.
