It's the UK's largest cryptocurrency confiscation to date.

Police in London have seized a record 180-million pounds worth of bitcoin, as part of an investigation into international money laundering.

It's the UK's largest cryptocurrency confiscation to date - but is also one of the world's biggest.

Last month, 114-million pounds worth was captured too.

A 39-year-old woman's been questioned in connection with both discoveries - she's been bailed.
