The PSNI have said investigations are ongoing following the seizure of cannabis worth an estimated £70,000.

The drugs - intercepted in the Northern Irish postal system - were seized as part of an operation targeting organised crime gangs last week.

Detective Sergeant Denis McGaffin said: "We believe these drugs were destined for a local criminal gang and our inquiries are ongoing to identify the individuals involved."

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101.
