£4m worth of drugs discovered in the back of a van in Wirral



DRUGS worth more than £4m were found hidden in steel barrels after a white van was stopped by police on Merseyside.

Officers uncovered 35kgs of heroin, two-and-a-half kilos of cocaine and nearly 200kgs of cannabis.

The sealed containers were scanned using a Customs X-ray machine before being carefully cut open to reveal the stash.

The Ford Transit was pulled over on the A41 as it left Birkenhead headed to New Ferry at around 8.35pm on Monday.

The six, large lead-lined barrels were strapped to a pallet in the back and covered in industrial cling-film. They had been imported from Amsterdam on Saturday and stored by a Birkenhead courier firm.

A sniffer dog alerted officers to the drugs and the drums were taken to a special scanner used by Customs and Excise.

The driver of the van was arrested. The boss of the courier firm was arrested later at his business after he arrived to let police inside.

The X-ray showed something encased in the middle of the metal. Police opened the barrels using specialist cutting equipment.

The find follows a series of swoops by the Serious Organised Crime Agency in Wirral on Friday.

At Liverpool magistrates’ court yesterday, Keith Henson, 45, of Proctor Road, Hoylake, appeared charged with four counts of conspiracy to supply heroin, cocaine, cannabis and cannabis resin over Monday’s discovery.

He was granted bail on the basis that he surrendered his passport, was electronically tagged and abides to a curfew. He also posted £75,000 surety.

Craig Harrison, 21, of Middleton, Manchester, also appeared charged with the same offences.

He was refused bail.

Both men will appear at Liverpool crown court on November 5.

4m worth in one stash? That 75k surety doesn't seem much does it?
