Nearly 800 litres of wine were seized by Revenue officers at Dublin Port yesterday.

Revenue officers at Dublin Port seized 786 litres of wine on Wednesday.

As a result of routine profiling, officers stopped and searched a Transit van which had arrived from France via Holyhead.

The smuggled red and white wines have a retail value of around €11,000.

This represents an estimated potential loss to the Exchequer of €5,400.
