Police in Solomon Islands have seized one of the largest quantities on record of illegally manufactured alcohol.

They says they found 600 litres of kwaso during a raid near Honiara.

They also say they arrested a man who has now been charged with manufacturing the homebrew.

Police says they will continue to investigate the illegal production of kwaso as part of their strategy to reduce crime associated with alcohol consumption.
