Four men to appear in court after £10.2 million of cannabis is discovered in a lorry near the Dartford Crossing

Four men are due in court after more than £10 million of cannabis was found in a lorry near the Dartford Crossing.

The drugs, which have an estimated street value of £10.2 million, were hidden beneath packets of rabbit hay in the vehicle, which was pulled over near the crossing at about 9am on Thursday, May 12 last year.

Detectives from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate have since been investigating and four men have now been charged with conspiracy to supply cannabis.
