Implant /PA

A woman was stopped by airport border police in Spain as she tried to smuggle cocaine in her breast implants.

The Panamanian woman was arrested as she walked through customs at Barcelona airport.

She had 1.38kg (3lb) of cocaine concealed in her new breast implants.

Border police stopped her after noticing fresh scars and blood-stained gauze on her chest.

The woman said she had recently had breast implant surgery.

Police were apparently suspicious and sent her to a local hospital where the implants were removed and found to contain cocaine.

The woman arrived in Spain from Bogota, Colombia.
