British cops tipped off Spanish authorities to a tug boat carrying £200 million worth of cocaine. Nearly four tonnes of the drug were seized by international law enforcement officers in the Atlantic. The drugs were found on a tugboat between Portugal's Madeira and Azores islands. Officials found 165 individual packages of cocaine weighing 23 kg, a total of 3.7 tonnes, hidden in the boat kitchen. The Comoros-flagged vessel was towed into the Spanish port of Cadiz. Spain confirmed they were acting on intelligence from the UK's National Crime Agency (NCA).
