Suttons training tank to combat smuggling

Suttons International has supplied Border Force with a tank container designed to help train officers to detect illicit goods entering the UK.

The training tank that can be used to demonstrate where contraband items might be hidden to aid detection when freight enters the UK from overseas.

Barry McNally, managing director of Suttons International, said: “As experts in isotank training, we were quickly able to fit out a suitable tank, based on our existing training design, to show how the tank could be modified to hide contraband.”

Border Force will also use the tank container for demonstration purposes at courses and conferences globally, with the potential to train other border agencies around the world, in future.
