"After a painstaking, six-day search of a million-pound luxury yacht, the U.K. border agency has seized its largest ever haul of cocaine — enough to satisfy around a third of Britain's annual demand for the drug. The cocaine, weighing 1.2 tons and with a street value of up to 300 million pounds ($492 million), was found expertly hidden beneath the bathing deck of the yacht "Louise" at Southampton docks in June, the border agency said."
