Following an appeal for information last week, police in Gibraltar have seized over 30 plastic jerry cans, many of which were full of marine fuel.

In the past, similar containers have been taken out to sea on small RHIBs (rigid inflatable boats) operating from Gibraltar's beaches for the purpose of refuelling larger RHIBs used by drug traffickers.

These cans were found in a pre-war bunker off Europa Advance Road.
