Drug smugglers caught at Gatwick Airport

Drug smugglers caught at Gatwick AirportGatwick Airport was the scene of an attempted drug smuggling operation this week when a woman was found to have cocaine under her wig.

Chermisa Lisa Daniel, aged 32 from St Lucia, was stopped by UK Border Agency officials after arriving at the London airport.

She was found to have one kilogram of cocaine hidden under her wig.

The haul was worth an estimated £40,000.

Her arrest follows that of 27-year-old Alisha Youngblood who was also caught attempting to smuggle cocaine into the country at Gatwick Airport.

The airport is currently the subject of controversy after owners BAA decided to contest the decision by the Competition Commission that it had to be sold.

Last month BAA, which is owned by Spanish company Ferrovial, announced that it would challenge the commission’s verdict after it said there was "bias" in the decision.

BAA has been told to sell Gatwick, Stansted and either Edinburgh or Glasgow airports.
