Three tonnes of cannabis seized
Three tonnes of cannabis resin have been found by West Midlands Police in its largest seizure of the drug.
The resin, which police believe has a street value of £9.5m, was found in a raid in Coventry on Tuesday.
The drugs were found in six pallets, each containing 500kg of cannabis resin bars.
A 41-year-old man was charged and another man arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of controlled drugs.
The charged man was expected to appear at Birmingham Magistrates' Court later.
The seizure was carried out at what was believed to be a warehouse on the outskirts of the city.
A police spokeswoman said the raid was carried out following an investigation into the supply of drugs in the area.
She said the resin, which she described as "high quality", was being examined by forensic experts.
About £20,000 in cash was also seized from the property.
