A suspected £90million haul of cocaine was found on a beach in West Wales yesterday

A suspected £90million haul of cocaine was found on a beach in West Wales yesterday.

Around 30 black bags, each containing 30 packages of what appeared to be 1kg bricks of the Class A drug, were discovered by a member of the public on an early-morning walk.

The project manager, who is in his 30s, was taking a stroll along Tan-y-Bwlch beach near Aberystwyth when he stumbled across the bags.

The black sacks, which were tied together with rope and empty gallon jerry cans for buoyancy, had washed up on the shore.

Inside, the suspected 1kg blocks were labelled with the name of fashion brand Dior.

Earlier this year, cocaine which washed up on the US’s Gulf of Mexico was branded with ‘Dior’ and last year cocaine packages in Australia also displayed the designer name.

The walker, who did not wish to be named, told The Mail on Sunday: ‘I was out for my early morning walk when I saw something on the beach.

‘I was intrigued and walked up to it and knew what it was almost straight away.

‘An old lady called the police and they came around half an hour later. They cut open a bag and it looked like pure cocaine. They dragged it off the beach and took it away.’

The UK’s cocaine market is estimated to be worth more than £25.7 million daily, according to the National Crime Agency’s latest strategic threat assessment.

Figures released by the agency earlier this year revealed how cocaine seizures nationwide have soared by 161 per cent between early 2020 and early last year.

Dyfed-Powys Police did not respond to requests for comment.
