I’m not surprised by cocaine haul on Norfolk’s beaches - coastline smuggling has been going on for centuries

Holdalls found washed up on Hopton beach near Great Yarmouth, containing around 360 kilos of cocaine

I am amazed that people find it surprising that drugs have been smuggled onto Norfolk beaches, or that you would only expect to find such incidents in city centres!

How do they think drugs arrive in city centres?

The Norfolk coast has been used for smuggling for centuries and I am more amazed that the authorities do not realise this.

Smuggled goods/people don't just enter the country through Calais.
