A woman has been arrested at Belfast City Airport on suspicion of money laundering.

The 26-year-old was detained at the airport on Wednesday afternoon and a large sum of cash was seized.

Detective Inspector Pete Mullan said the arrest is the latest in a series of operations carried out by the PSNI's Organised Crime Unit.

"Tackling organised crime remains a priority for the PSNI," he added.

"We will continue to make Northern Ireland a hostile environment to those involved in organised crime within our communities.  We will seek to identify them, arrest them and bring them before the courts.

“We will continue to robustly and proactively pursue those who are intent on damaging our communities. If you have any information about criminality call police on 101."

Information can also be provided anonymously to Crimestopppers on 0800 555 111.
