The British Navy’s HMS Iron Duke has seized it’s largest cocaine bust on record, with assistance from a US Coast Guard Law Enforcement Detachment (LEDET).

“This surpasses anything we’ve had and anything the Navy had previously,” said Commander Andrew Stacey of the HMS Iron Duke. “It is the largest drugs bust by value, and by volume in terms of cocaine.”

The BBC has video of the Brits taking the M/V Cristal under fire.
