Gardai have seized drugs worth over an estimated €1m at Dublin port.

The haul of appproximately 15kg of cocaine was found in a haulage vehicle that had arrived from the UK yesterday morning.

Gardai intercepted the drugs as part of a joint, intelligence-led operation between Revenue customs and the Garda's drugs and organised crime bureau.

A 36-year-old man was arrested in connection with the incident and has been charged with drug trafficking offences.

He remains in custody and is scheduled to appear in court at 10.30 am on Monday.
