Two men have been charged with importing drugs after a haul of cocaine worth £3m was found in a lorry.

National Crime Agency and Border Force officers discovered 36kg of the drug inside the truck which arrived in Dover from France on Thursday.

A 40-year-old man from Dover who was arrested has been released under investigation.

Mr Sloan, of Magheralin, Northern Ireland, and Mr Bunce, of Kingswood, Kent, are due to appear at Canterbury Magistrates' Court later.
