A Cheshire resident has appeared in the Magistrate's Court after cannabis with a street value of £300,000 was found concealed in his car.

Customs and Immigration Officers searched his car as he left the boat, finding what they described as a "commercial consignment" of cannabis - a class B drug in Jersey - hidden in a navy VW (pictured top).

The drugs, officials said, have a street value of £300,000.

Note: This report originally said that the Mr Cank was a resident of Liverpool, as stated by the Justice and Home Affairs Department. He is actually from Cheshire.
