Australian police have arrested two men and seized a record 350kg of drugs in a major sting on an international drug ring operating in Australia.

The drugs were hidden inside a road roller which was shipped from China to Port Botany.

The bust was the second major success for Australian police within a week after they seized more than 200kg of cocaine from a yacht that washed up on a deserted island in the South Pacific.
