A Waterford man who tried to smuggle over 94 million euro worth of cocaine into the UK has been jailed for 16 years.
68-year-old fishing boat skipper Michael McDermott was convicted of drug importation offences following a week-long trial at Bristol Crown Court.
He was one of three men arrested onboard the Bianca boat in August 2016.
The seizure was up to 70 percent pure and weighted 939kg.
It was the biggest single seizure of cocaine in the UK last year.
