has washed up on two beaches in Norfolk.

:00:00.:00:15.

The drugs were found yesterday in holdalls

:00:16.:00:17.

And this morning smaller packages were discovered

:00:18.:00:21.

So far, 360 kilos of cocaine have been found,

:00:22.:00:26.

and investigators say more drugs could be washed ashore.

:00:27.:00:28.

Today police swept the beach looking for more packages that have washed

:00:29.:00:42.

They estimate approximately 360 kilograms of the class A drug

:00:43.:00:47.

were found on the beach in holdalls that were kept afloat

:00:48.:00:49.

The seizure, which if cut and sold on the streets

:00:50.:00:59.

could have a potential value of over ?50 million.

:01:00.:01:01.

The National Crime Agency believe this find will be a major

:01:02.:01:04.

360 kilograms of cocaine is definitely a significant seizure

:01:05.:01:10.

and one that we are quite pleased with, as law enforcement.

:01:11.:01:15.

Obviously it will not make its way onto the streets.

:01:16.:01:18.

But washed up on the beach is very unusual.

:01:19.:01:20.

Still, it is a significant detection.

:01:21.:01:21.

Ryan Barnett worked constructing the sea defences here,

:01:22.:01:23.

and says it is not the first time this has happened.

:01:24.:01:26.

I understand you have found stuff like this?

:01:27.:01:28.

Yeah, there was stuff we found back then, obviously not as much

:01:29.:01:37.

A smaller amount, about ten kilos, I think it was.

:01:38.:01:48.

Tonight, Norfolk Police say they believe all packages have been

:01:49.:01:51.

recovered and they will continue to work with the

:01:52.:01:53.

This evening the police said they will step up

:01:54.:01:56.

On the street cocaine is sold in one gram wraps,

:01:57.:02:00.

so this seizure means over 360,000 wraps have been stopped before

:02:01.:02:02.

Police are to start a major search of a landfill site

:02:03.:02:12.

to try to find the missing airman Corrie McKeague.

:02:13.:02:16.

A thousand square metres of the Milton landfill

:02:17.:02:23.

It will take up to ten weeks to complete.

:02:24.:02:29.

Milton landfill site, not far from Cambridge.

:02:30.:02:30.

It is the focus of the latest phase of the investigation

:02:31.:02:33.

into the missing airman, Corrie McKeague.

:02:34.:02:38.

Police will search 1000 square metres of the site, up to a

:02:39.:02:42.

after Corrie was picked up on CCTV walking into a loading bay behind

:02:43.:02:51.

some shops, a dead end full of bins.

:02:52.:02:53.

Shortly after, a waste lorry was caught on camera making

:02:54.:02:55.

a collection in the same area where Corrie was

:02:56.:02:58.

The lorry itself was forensically tested but

:02:59.:03:02.

Waste from that lorry is still at the side after police told

:03:03.:03:09.

them not to put anything on top of it.

:03:10.:03:15.

Since he went missing in the early hours of the 24th of

:03:16.:03:18.

September, there have already been searches involving hundreds of

:03:19.:03:20.

We have 40 members of the public, I have somewhere

:03:21.:03:24.

round about 60 trained search technicians, team leaders

:03:25.:03:26.

We have 14 four by fours out who will run and ferry the

:03:27.:03:30.

Police say searching the site is the next logical step

:03:31.:03:35.

Corrie's mother, Nicola, told Look East this

:03:36.:03:43.

latest news leave the family with mixed emotions, and while she is

:03:44.:03:46.

pleased searches are taking place, she is terrified and desperate for

:03:47.:03:49.

The lorry driver who died when his truck crashed onto the A12

:03:50.:04:02.

in Essex from a bridge has been named by his family.

:04:03.:04:05.

30-year-old Gurdip Johal, who lived in Witham, died on Wednesday.

:04:06.:04:09.

His lorry was carrying batteries, and the trailer has now been moved.

:04:10.:04:15.

Greater Anglia has unveiled a plan for a new ?70

:04:16.:04:20.

It will be built by the rail operator Abellio on a former factory

:04:21.:04:26.

New trains, which will be bought as part of the company's nine-year

:04:27.:04:31.

franchise agreement, will be serviced and repaired there.

:04:32.:04:37.

The firm says it will help them transform train

:04:38.:04:39.

Travellers on the Great Eastern Line out of Liverpool Street have

:04:40.:04:48.

for a decade looked out on a post-industrial wasteland

:04:49.:04:53.

as the train passes over the River Stour estuary to Brantham,

:04:54.:04:56.

It used to be a thriving industrial centre employing thousands.

:04:57.:04:59.

ICI one of the companies that used to operate here.

:05:00.:05:02.

Margaret Roberts, later Margaret Thatcher, was employed

:05:03.:05:04.

as a research chemist at a plastics company close by.

:05:05.:05:06.

Now, 22 acres is earmarked for a state of the art

:05:07.:05:09.

This is an enormous decrepit and decaying site which is crying

:05:10.:05:16.

out for regeneration which many people thought would never happen.

:05:17.:05:19.

And I think the thing that is so important for all of us

:05:20.:05:22.

in the east of England is this is the first step on the road to how

:05:23.:05:26.

this new franchise will regenerate the broader eastern economy.

:05:27.:05:28.

The new depot will have 15 tracks for stabling,

:05:29.:05:30.

cleaning and maintaining a new fleet of trains.

:05:31.:05:34.

It will complement existing ones at Norwich, Clacton and Ilford

:05:35.:05:36.

and include a new lathe, especially useful in the autumn

:05:37.:05:39.

when falling leaves create slippery conditions can

:05:40.:05:40.

Local planners have given permission for 300 new homes nearby, and now

:05:41.:05:44.

This is the largest inward investment since

:05:45.:05:50.

?70 million coming in to a very tricky site

:05:51.:05:56.

Greater Anglia accepts its current service needs improvement.

:05:57.:06:02.

When the service is running reliably then I think it is a good service,

:06:03.:06:06.

but I am absolutely honest when I say there are still too many

:06:07.:06:09.

incidents and that is where the billions that we are putting in,

:06:10.:06:13.

that will reduce these incidents and they will keep

:06:14.:06:16.

The timescale for this project is ambitious -

:06:17.:06:21.

design work is underway now and work proper should start in the summer.

:06:22.:06:25.

The aim is to have it up and running by December 2018.

:06:26.:06:29.

Then it will receive the first of a fleet of new trains to be

:06:30.:06:34.

We have some further showers this evening and overnight and rain,

:06:35.:06:58.

sleet and snow in some snow likely to settle. Temperatures are around

:06:59.:07:03.

minus one Celsius sought some frost in places and also missed the murky.

:07:04.:07:09.

The risk of further win today showers in the morning tomorrow but

:07:10.:07:13.

mostly be turned to rain. Cloudy skies and staying cold. We keep the

:07:14.:07:21.

showers feeding and on those north-easterly winds tomorrow

:07:22.:07:25.

evening. NA moment the National forecast. Sunday is another cloudy

:07:26.:07:29.

Bay and the bitterly the cold easterly wind. We keep the

:07:30.:07:32.

exception to that rule probably over the hills where again there could be

:07:33.:07:36.

a bit of snow, but not accumulating. Another cold

:07:37.:07:43.

However I paint this weekend's picture, I'll need a palette of

:07:44.:07:48.

grey. Thereby a a lot of cloud around but I managed to find some

:07:49.:07:52.

sunshine. I don't know how but there was a couple of hours towards the

:07:53.:07:57.

south-west in Cornwall, a beautiful day. The south-west saw glimpses of

:07:58.:08:01.

sunshine. Further east, cloudy, cold and grey with winds off the North

:08:02.:08:06.

seep and a scattering of wintry showers. Yes, rain sleet and snow, a

:08:07.:08:10.

dusting at lower levels through the day. It brought this beautiful

:08:11.:08:16.

picture on the outskirts of Aberdeenshire. But enough of the

:08:17.:08:25.

sun, let's get back to the nitty gritty and talk about the snow

:08:26.:08:30.

showers that will continue across the eastern half of the UK

:08:31.:08:33.

throughout the night. There will be some significant accumulations

:08:34.:08:35.

higher ground. A dusting at lower levels, and it will 's be cold

:08:36.:08:40.

further north and west, particularly in sheltered Highlands of Scotland,

:08:41.:08:41.
