The second of two men arrested by police following the seizure of class A drugs with a total potential street value of £21,500 at the Holmsgarth ferry terminal is to appear in court on Monday.

The 39-year-old was detained by officers acting on intelligence who met the NorthLink boat on Thursday morning. A report has been sent to the procurator fiscal.

Meanwhile the first man, Thomas Mcaleavey, 47, of Ywye Street, Liverpool, appeared in private at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Friday. He made no plea or declaration, was committed for further examination and remanded in custody. He is expected to appear in court again next week.

A spokesman for Northern Constabulary said: “The seizure of drugs being taken to Shetland continues and is helped with information provided by the public. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Lerwick Police on (01595) 692110.”
