- Joint operation lands a tonne of cocaine from a yacht
One tonne of the Class A drug cocaine was seized from the 62ft yacht off the coast of Ireland on 23 September, which had been sailed from the Carribbean.
If cut and sold in the UK, this drug haul would have a street value in excess of £100million.
The Makayabella was intercepted by Irish authorities while investigators also seized a 25ft (7.6m) motor boat called Sea Breeze, moored in Pwllheli, north Wales.
Three men are awaiting trial in Ireland in connection with the seizure.
