Major drugs operation: Scottish Borders

A major drugs operation has been carried out in the Scottish Borders. It's the largest drugs crack-down in more than 5 years.

Raids took place at homes across the region this morning as part of Operation Goal.

Lothian and Borders Police, Scottish Borders Council and NHS Borders are working together to tackle drug dealers across the region.

As a result of today's raids in Galashiels, Kelso, Selkirk and Hawick, 11 people have been arrested and charged.

Police relied on information from the public to target specific homes.

They seized street dealer amounts of Heroin and Valium, a cannabis cultivation and personal quantities of cannabis, as well as £3000.
