A fine of €3,200 was imposed on a 41-year-old biker in the Larnaca area in the early hours of Sunday after police said they found 180 packs of tobacco in his possession.

The biker was stopped for a routine check around 1am when officers said they found the stash on his vehicle.

He was taken to customs which imposed the fine for unpaid duties, and confiscated the 9kg of tobacco, which officers established had come from the north.
