John McGowan, senior investigating officer for the NCA, said: "The search of this vessel has been lengthy and painstaking, undertaken by hugely skilled specialists working in difficult conditions.
"The result is this massive discovery - believed to be the biggest single class A drug seizure on record in the UK, and likely to be worth several hundred million pounds.
"Our investigation continues, but the operation was only possible thanks to the close co-operation between the NCA, Border Force, the Royal Navy, plus the French DNRED and our other international partners. The extensive operation in Aberdeen was given substantial support from Police Scotland."

Ok. Good bust. But is this not in international waters?
If so, what right does Britain have to even stop the boat let alone search it?

With that sort of insane load it doesnt matter what punishment they get from the law, their days are numbered as i dont suspect they can cough up £500m to pay back the drug lord!!!

Not sure how it works in the UK but here in the states they'd flip those involved for intel and reward them with witness protection.
