Reports of more drugs washing up on the Norfolk coast are being investigated by police.
On Sunday (February 12) a member of the public handed a package into the Happisburgh Coast Watch cabin.
Coast Watch treasurer John Brooks said they contacted the police, who attended and removed the package.
He described the find as a small, heavy package, “possibly another pack of drugs.”
On Thursday, 360kg of what is suspected to be cocaine were found in bags and containers on beaches at Hopton and Caister, near Great Yarmouth.
The total street value of the drugs could be £50m.
Matthew Rivers, from the National Crime Agency’s border investigation team, said: “This is obviously a substantial seizure of class A drugs, and its loss will represent a major blow to the organised criminals involved.”
