A MAN attempting to smuggle €2,000 worth of hash in his trainers has been arrested.

The shoes – black Nike Air Force 1s – had been altered to conceal the hash in the tongues and in cavities under the insoles.

Tax officers stopped the man at customs, after he arrived from Ceuta, noting that he seemed ‘nervous’.
