A MAN who helped to smuggle €46.9 million pounds worth of cocaine into the UK from Spain has been ordered to pay back almost €60,000.

Robert Dalrymple, 44, formerly of Gretna, in Scotland, was sentenced to nearly seven years in prison in 2011.

He was found guilty of acting as a courier for a massive drug dealing operation between Spain and the UK.

A confiscation order for €59,835 was made against him at the High Court in Edinburgh.
