It has seized more than three million packs which were housed in six containers on boats off the coast of Cadiz.

The mammoth discovery makes up between a quarter and a third of the total smuggled tobacco seized by the agency in a year in all of Spain.

The operation, Escudo, started last June, and the Tax Agency has received support from the British authorities.
