London bailiffs find $8.5m in cash at Docklands flat

Bailiffs have discovered $8.5m (£5.1m) in cash at a flat in east London.

They were executing a warrant at the property in Wards Wharf Apartments in the Docklands area of the city on Wednesday.

Scotland Yard said it had seized the cash haul and was awaiting authentication.

A 29-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of money laundering. He has since been released on bail until mid-August.
