Thousands of ecstasy tablets in the shape of Donald Trump's head have been seized by German police.

The drug haul has an estimated street value of 39,000 euros (£35,700).

Police in Osnabrueck, in north-western Germany, said they found the drugs while checking an Austrian-registered car.

They said the people in the car, a 51-year-old man and his 17-year-old son, told officers they had been in the Netherlands to buy a vehicle but had not succeeded so were returning home.

Officers said they found about 5,000 of the orange, Trump-shaped ecstasy tablets along with a large, but unspecified quantity of cash.

A judge ordered the father and son be kept in custody. The car was seized and towed away.
