Detectives are working on a theory that a gang based in the south-east of the country have teamed up with a cross-border crime organisation to form one of the country’s biggest drug import networks.

Specialist officers are examining links between a number of prominent haulage companies. They are also investigating whether truck drivers are being flown to France to return to ports here by ferry in trucks containing drugs, and other criminals are being sent to the continent to act as “minders” for shipments.
