Five people have been arrested over the alleged theft of four tonnes of oranges in the Seville municipality of Carmona.

Two vehicles were stopped after their driving aroused suspicion and both were found to have had large quantities of oranges, without paperwork.

The vehicles' occupants claimed to have “found them on the ground” and that they were for their own consumption.
