COCAINE which could be worth up to £400,0000 has been seized from a car on the A19.

The haul was discovered by Cleveland officers who stopped and searched a Volkswagen Jetta close to the A174 turn off on Friday.

A large quantity of suspected cocaine was seized from the vehicle, estimated to be worth between £200,000 and £400,000, subject to the drugs being examined.

Two men both aged 25 were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply class A drugs and have been released under investigation.

Enquiries are ongoing.
