It was sent by recorded delivery from Venezuela to Barcelona via London.

Now police have arrested a 35-year-old Spanish man, known only as JVLL, who is believed to have received the crockery in the mail, after an international investigation.

They believe JVLL was forced into the deal by Venezuelan drug lords. The dealers had hoped to treat the drug and then sell it in Catalonia, police said.

Spain has the second-highest level of cocaine consumption in Europe after Britain.
