Police in Spain have seized 7.5 kilos of cannabis which was about to be posted to Scotland.

Authorities said they found the drug wrapped in pillow cases and ready to be shipped through a delivery service.

The National Police made the seizure after tip-offs. Sniffer dogs identified the package. A 32-year-old man and his 21-year-old brother, both Spaniards, have been detained on suspicion of drugs trafficking.
