Cannabis thought to be worth almost €13,000 has been seized in Dublin.

Detector dog Stella sniffed the drugs out at Dublin Mail Centre this morning.

They were hidden in a parcel which had been posted from Belgium to an address in Dublin's North City.

Separately this morning, illegal cigarettes worth €6,000 were found by officers at Portlaoise Mail Centre.

They came from China, and were hidden in two parcels, said to contain a handbag and a gift box.
