Revenue officers at Dublin Port have seized 360 litres of wine after stopping a van coming into the country from France.

The van was searched based on routine profiling and the driver, a 41-year-old Irish man, was questioned.

Revenue said that the seized wine has a total retail value of around €5,200, representing potential loss to the Exchequer of around €2,600.

The seizure was carried out as part of Revenue's ongoing operations against the illegal importation, supply and sale of alcohol and tobacco products.
