Three arrested after cash and drugs seized in raids

Three people have been arrested after raids took place this morning (November 21st) where drugs and money were seized from addresses in Prudhoe and Greenside.

A 31-year-old man, a 53-year-old woman and a 26-year-old man, have been arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of controlled drugs.

£30,000 in cash, believed to have been gained through criminal activity, and around £2,000 worth of Class A drugs have also been seized.

The raids took place at addresses in Brettonby Avenue, in Stocksfield, Castle Lea, Masters Crescent and Moorside in Prudhoe and Rose Terrace in Greenside.


Possible public inquiry into Prudhoe redevelopment

A decision's expected on whether a public inquiry will be held into plans for the redevelopment of Prudhoe town centre. The Duke of Northumberland wants to spend £30m on the town, creating a supermarket and multi-story car park.

Northumberland County Council granted planning permission in June. The scheme has attracted widespread opposition from many traders.
