    Cocaine haul worth £10m discovered underwater near shipping container at Kent’s Sheerness Port – By Sky News Staff (Sky News) / Oct 28, 2023

    The find at Sheerness Port in Kent is one of two underwater concealments of class A drugs ever to be discovered off the UK coast.

    A haul of cocaine worth £10m has been seized after divers found it underwater off the coast of Kent.

    The drugs, which weighed 137kg (302lb), were discovered by the Border Force National Deep Rummage Team in four large North Face holdalls at Sheerness Port on 14 October.

    They were hidden inside a sea chest in an area of a shipping container used to take in seawater for stability.

    The container was Panama-registered and transporting bananas to the Netherlands, with the NCA now working with the authorities in both countries to trace the source of the cocaine.
