Police in Harrogate have arrested two people from Bradford as they continue their crackdown on county lines drug dealing.   

A man, 20 and a boy, 16, were seen "acting suspiciously in the Library Gardens area of Harrogate and were stopped by officers from North Yorkshire Police’s proactive Operation Expedite team", police said.

Following searches a large quantity of suspected heroin and crack cocaine was seized and the pair were arrested on suspicion of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply.

The 20-year-old has been released on police bail and the 16-year-old released while under investigation as enquiries continue.

Anyone who has any information about drug dealing in their area is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101.
