WATCH: Man unpacks €8m worth of cannabis on beach

A man unpacked €8m worth of cannabis on a beach whilst tourists stood and watched in awe.

A video showing the crowd of tourists who gathered on the Costa del Sol shore as burly men transport the drugs casually across the beach has gone viral since it occurred at 1.30pm on Saturday.

Witnesses filmed the scenes and some called the police but the criminals were not deterred.

Spain is the entry into Europe for cannabis and British fugitives flock there as they see the illegal trade as an easy way to make money on the run.

Cocaine also pours into Spain from South America whilst cannabis resin is commonly shipped from Morocco.
