Customs officials seized a multi-million-pound haul of smuggled cigarettes and alcohol in a raid.
HM Revenue & Customs raided the property, near Ibstock, in north west Leicestershire, on Friday.
Over five million counterfeit cigarettes and about 70,000 litres of alcohol were found in several outbuildings.
The cigarettes, described as being the Regal Kingsize brand, were discovered in a 40-ft curtain sided trailer.
A second unit contained 85 pallets of illicit alcohol - including 62,000 litres of beer, 9,000 litres of wine, and 1,000 litres of vodka and whisky.
