2m cigarettes seized at Rosslare

More than two million cigarettes have been seized at Rosslare Harbour in Co Wexford.

Customs officers intercepted a 40ft container which had arrived from Cherbourg in northern France.

The tobacco has an estimated street value of one million euro, officials said, and had been concealed in a shipment described as 'stone'.

One man in his 40s was detained and is being questioned.
