Stewardess charged after drugs find
An air stewardess has been charged following the seizure of around six kilos of cocaine at Heathrow Airport.
Border Force officers discovered the drugs on a bus which had been used to transport air crew following a flight from Lagos to London by Nigerian carrier Arik Air.
It is estimated that the cocaine, if cut and sold on UK streets, could have had a potential street value of around £600,000.
The stewardess, Temitayo Daramola, 37, was later charged with attempting to import a class A drug.
She appeared before Uxbridge magistrates in west London on Wednesday where she was remanded in custody until her next court appearance on June 4.
A second crew member arrested at the same time as Daramola on Monday has been released.
