The investigation was triggered in January when evidence emerged that an organisation was purchasing large quantities of hashish in Spain and transporting it for sale in Britain.

Investigators learned that the drugs were being acquired in the provinces of Granada and Murcia, where traffickers vacuum-packed them and hid them in trucks bound for England.

Police said in a statement on Sunday they arrested two Spaniards and two Britons as they transferred buds from Granada to Murcia.

They raided a drug and equipment-filled house in hills near the towns of Abaran and Ricote.
