A 28 year-old man has been arrested after police stopped a car in Belfast on Friday before a huge suspected cocaine haul was recovered.

The discovery was made on the West Bank road on Friday night.

The estimated street value of the seized drugs stands at £1.2million (around €1.4million)

Police said they were "delighted to have removed a large quantity of drugs off the streets of Northern Ireland".

"The PSNI is committed to making Northern Ireland a hostile environment for those involved in drug criminality," a spokesman said.

Police are appealing for anyone with information on drug dealing to contact officers.
