Searches of the LGV discovered the vast stash of drugs and police are now appealing for witnesses.
Detective superintendent Peter Fulham said: “A significant quantity of drugs has been removed from criminal circulation and I have a team of officers investigating who is responsible for their importation and intended distribution.”
