POLICE in the south of Spain have recovered more than 6,000 kilos of cocaine in a massive drugs bust in Malaga on the Costa del Sol.
It is believed to be the second largest stash found in Europe, with a street value of €360million and was hidden in amongst a shipment of bananas.
National Police and Guardia Civil officers raided the warehouse on Santa Teresa industrial estate in the city with a huge presence while closing surrounding streets.
Around a dozen people were detained on the premises.
Last year more than 8,500 kilos of cocaine were seized in the port of Algeciras that arrived in a shipment of bananas from Colombia.
