Spanish police have found cocaine worth nearly £10million hidden in bars of candy.


Some 230 kilos of the drug were found in a container which arrived at Valencia from Colombia last week.


Inside the container were 34,000 bars of panela, a typical South American candy made from the juice of sugar cane.


They were destined for a cocaine laboratory which police had already uncovered last month.


When examined more than 500 of the candy bars had cocaine hidden inside them worth a total of £9.7m at street value.


The lab in southern central Spain was processing 50 kilos of cocaine a week when it was raided, police said yesterday.
