Two Brits are in a Caribbean jail on suspicion of trying to smuggle class A drugs on a plane to London.
Cops on the paradise island of Grenada say they found nearly 3lb of cocaine stashed inside luggage, on July 26.
Brits Nadine Jones, 31, and Simeon Archibald, 35, have been charged with possession and trafficking of a controlled drug.
They were bidding to fly out of Maurice Bishop International Airport on a Virgin Atlantic flight, a police spokesman said.
A spokesman for the Foreign Office said: “We are aware of an arrest in Grenada and we’re providing consular assistance to the family. We are looking into reports of a second arrest of a British national.”
Jones and Archibald are due to appear in court again on August 3.
