_90272749_mediaitem90272748BBC – New Zealand police say they have made their biggest ever seizure of cocaine, hidden inside a novel kind of drug mule.

They intercepted the $10m (£7.6m) worth of cocaine inside a huge diamante-encrusted statue of a horse’s head.

The shipment of 35kg (77lb) bricks was air-freighted from Mexico to the city of Auckland in May.

An American and two Mexicans were arrested over the weekend following a six-week investigation.

The horse’s head weighed 365kg and was 1m (3ft) tall, the New Zealand Herald reported.
