Three arrested over laundered fuel

Three men have been arrested by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) following the discovery of 2,000 litres of laundered fuel.

A pump, storage tanks and hoses were also found in a van and a scout car in Lisburn County Antrim.

The vehicles were stopped by police and seized by HMRC officers on Tuesday.

A small laundering plant, capable of producing around 1,000 litres of laundered fuel a week, was found in a shed in Coalisland, County Tyrone.

The plant was dismantled by police and customs officers.

The three men were interviewed and bailed pending further inquiries.
