A man in his 50s has been arrested after Revenue Customs officers discovered 40 kilos of cannabis worth €800,000 during a search at Rosslare port on Monday.

The discovery was made after officials stopped and searched a Polish-registered articulated lorry and accompanying trailer which had disembarked a ferry from Dunkirk, France.

Using Revenue’s mobile x-ray scanner, and aided by detector dog Flynn, the cannabis was discovered concealed within the spare tyres of the trailer.

The man was arrested by Gardaí at the scene.
