A female flight attendant has been charged following the seizure at Heathrow Airport of a stash of cocaine worth around £600,000.

Border Force officers discovered six kilos of drugs on a bus which had been used to transport air crew following a flight from Lagos to London by Nigerian carrier Arik Air.

It is estimated that the cocaine could have had a potential UK street value of around £600,000.

The stewardess, Temitayo Daramola, 37, has been charged with attempting to import a class A drug, and has been remanded in custody at Uxbridge Magistrates Court until her next court appearance on June 4.
