Tens of millions of pounds worth of cocaine seized after luxury yacht intercepted in Channel
A HUGE cocaine haul was seized yesterday after a luxury yacht was intercepted in the Channel.
Tens of millions of pounds worth of the drug were found on the 120ft Kahu when it was stopped at sea by a Border Force cutter.
The craft was brought into Turnchapel Wharf in Plymouth early yesterday.
Six men were arrested and brought ashore in handcuffs.
One witness said: “The place was swarming with National Crime Agency officers and local police.”
The swoop, to intercept drugs destined for the UK, followed a tip-off and an international operation, involving Australian Federal Police.
The yacht — listed for sale for £1.3million in 2018 — left Barbados 18 days ago and was tracked by satellite across the Atlantic Ocean.
