Detectives investigating money laundering offences have arrested a woman following the seizure of crypto-currency worth £114 million – the largest cryptocurrency seizure in the UK and believed to be one of the largest globally.

The 39-year-old woman was arrested at an address in London and taken into custody at a London police station. She was arrested on suspicion of POCA offences (Money Laundering).

She has since been bailed to a date in late July.
