Video: Criminal gold worth £2.5m auctioned in Belfast


More than half a million pounds worth of gold smuggled into the UK by criminals has been sold at a Belfast auction.

The gold, amounting to almost 150 kilos, was seized by HMRC from a jeweller, who evaded more than £7m in VAT by smuggling the precious metal from Dubai into the UK.

The jeweller was jailed for nine years in 2012 and the gold has been auctioned off by Wilsons Auctions in Mallusk.
