Tens of thousands of pounds were found crammed in a shoebox after police stopped a car.

Officers are yet to count the money, but believe the container was filled with about £50,000 in cash.

It was seized along with a small quantity of cannabis in the Kennington Road area of Ashford at about 5.15pm on Wednesday.
