An unclaimed bag containing £800,000 worth of cocaine has been found on an airport luggage carousel.

UK Border Agency (UKBA) officers discovered the haul when they were alerted to an abandoned suitcase at Heathrow Airport on Friday.

The bag, which arrived on a flight from Mexico, contained 20kg of cocaine.

The case has been passed to HM Revenue and Customs investigators, who have not yet identified a passenger for the baggage.
