One hundred thousand litres of laundered fuel has been discovered after a raid by officers from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and Gloucestershire police.

The raid took place at industrial premises at Coleford in Gloucestershire, and a man from the Forest of Dean was arrested on suspicion of duty evasion.

An HMRC spokeswoman confirmed it had been involved in dismantling suspected fuel laundering equipment, fuel pumps and storage tanks and also removed a quantity of waste material from the site.
