Type 45 destroyer HMS Dragon has seized 49kg of heroin – her fifth drugs bust in three months in the Gulf…

The Portsmouth-based ship made the seizure as she returned to maritime security operations on the notorious drug smuggling route known as the ‘Hash Highway.’ The Class-A drugs, which have been destroyed, would have had a street value of £9m. The sale of these drugs is a known source of funding for terrorist organisations and criminal networks.
