A BRITISH national has been stopped at Malaga airport on suspicion of money laundering.

The man, who had travelled from Lisbon, used items of clothing and other objects in an attempt to disguise €170,000 hidden in his suitcase.

Airport officials called the Guardia Civil when the man was unable to prove how he had acquired such a large amount of cash.

Pity we can’t call the police when the government launders our money by taking £5 in tax and spending £10, does anybody ask them to prove how they came by the extra fiver.
