Four Britons arrested after £50 million drug seizure in Australia

Four British men have been arrested in Australia and New Zealand following a drugs operation targeting a UK organised crime syndicate.

Queensland Police said they had seized 766kg of MDMA powder in one of the region’s biggest-ever busts on Tuesday.

Police in the state arrested two UK citizens, a 51-year-old man and a 40-year-old man, and a 26-year-old Australian man.

A 51-year-old Australian woman was arrested in New South Wales.

As part of the operation, police in New Zealand also seized 200kg of methamphetamine last week.

A 60-year-old man and a 49-year-old man, both from the UK, were arrested.
