Revenue officers seized 1kg of herbal cannabis during a routine search at Dublin Port.

The drugs - worth an estimated €20,000 street value - were hidden in candle jars.

Originating from Spain, the candle jars were addressed to a location in Dublin city centre.

Officers have partly attributed the discovery to the assistance of detector dog 'Meg'.

Investigations into the seizure are currently ongoing.
