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.
Antony Morris, 56, of Main Road in Sutton-at-Hone, Dartford, Andrew Badland, 36, of Porters Avenue in Dagenham, Essex, Kevin Howell, 54, of Benskins Lane in Romford, Essex, and Paul Seabrook, 51, of Kendal Croft in Hornchurch, Essex, will all appear at Medway Magistrates Court on Tuesday, September 26.
Seabrook has also been charged with possession with intent to supply cocaine and possession with intent to supply MDMA.
