POLICE have arrested a second man after millions of pounds worth of cocaine was uncovered in a lorry carrying frozen fish.

The 43-year-old was arrested in Ryde on the Isle of Wight over the weekend on suspicion of conspiring to import class a drugs.

This followed Border Force officers seizing 97 packages containing more than £10 million worth of cocaine from a lorry at Newhaven port in the early hours of November 23 last year.

After the incident, lorry driver James Satterly, of Kings Lane, Cookham, near Maidenhead, was charged with importing class A drugs.

The 50-year-old is now awaiting trial.

Nationally Crime Agency branch operations manager Martin Matthews said the organisation’s investigation into the mass importation is still ongoing.

He said: “Working with partners like Border Force and policing, we are determined to do all we can to disrupt the organised crime groups involved in the large-scale importation of class A drugs.”
