THE amount of cocaine seized in Spain has more than doubled in just one year.

Spanish authorities seized 32 tonnes of cocaine in 2017, up 15 tonnes from 2016.

This is an incredible 40% of all cocaine captured in Europe, the interior ministry revealed.

Due to the high workload of Spanish police, drug runners have been forced to find new routes through Belgium and the Netherlands to bring narcotics into Europe.
