How NOT to pay for your vacation

More than £1 million-worth of cocaine has allegedly been found strapped to the bodies of four cruise ship passengers after a raid on the vessel as it docked at Southampton.

Dozens of officers from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and the UK Border Agency boarded the P&O ship Arcadia early Monday morning.

Officers recovered 30 kilos of cocaine, worth $2.4 million, officials said.

The ship had just returned from a 23-day cruise around the Caribbean where it stopped at places including Antigua, St Lucia, Grenada and Barbados.

A spokeswoman for P&O said this was the first time she had known passengers to be arrested for allegedly smuggling cocaine.
