Two people have been arrested after a haul of stolen cars were seized at the Port of Felixstowe. 

An investigation by Nottinghamshire Police led to a container ship, which was destined for the United Arab Emirates, being intercepted at the Suffolk port on October 3.

Inside, officers found three cars displaying false number plates which had been reported stolen, including a black Jaguar which was last seen on March 17.

Warrants were also executed at ports in London and Southampton on October 10 and October 12. 

In total, 11 vehicles were seized from four shipping containers. 

A 63-year-old man and a 67-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods after officers discovered two stolen vehicles at a farm in Carburton's Ollerton Road in Nottinghamshire.

Further searches of the outbuildings at the farm led to five more vehicles, including two BMWs, two Mercedes and a red Jaguar F-Pace V6 being sized. 

The pair have been released on bail, pending further enquiries, following the raid on Sunday, October 15.
