One man was arrested yesterday when Customs and Excise officers seized pounds 300,000 which two men were allegedly attempting to export to the Netherlands from London's Heathrow airport.

A Customs spokesman said: "Officers from the Customs and Excise national investigation service will now make inquiries regarding the man under the Drug Trafficking Act."

The seizure of the money is believed to be part of an investigation into alleged money laundering. Inquiries are continuing.
