A man has been found guilty of trying to smuggle cocaine with a street value of about £160,000 into the UK during a Christmas shopping trip with his wife.

Sean Hart , 48, of Wallsend, was stopped in his hired van at the Eurotunnel controls in Coquelles, France, in December 2016.

Hart told Border Force officials he had been on a trip with his wife to the Netherlands for gifts and a motorbike.

Officers then found two packages of cocaine concealed in the dashboard.
