European drug sub


Reported here:
A submarine which police say may have been used for cocaine smuggling has been found floating off Spain's north-western coast.

It was spotted by a member of the public in an inlet along the rugged coastline on Sunday.

No drugs were found on board the vessel, but it is now being dismantled at a shipyard in Moana, near Vigo.

It is reported to be about 10m (33ft) long, made by amateurs from basic materials, not by professionals.
