An estimated £180,000 of drugs were seized in the Ballybean area of Dundonald and on the M1 near Moira after a vehicle was stopped.

One man, aged 28, has been charged with possession and intent to supply of Class A and B controlled drugs.

Both men are due to appear at Newtownards Magistrates Court on Thursday.
