Sergeant Robinson said: "Drugs have no place in our community and, through Operation Dealbreaker, we will continue to tackle the supply, use and harm caused by illegal drugs.

"This seizure is significant but getting these drugs off the streets is only half the battle. We work with range of partner agencies to try to break this cycle and reduce the devastating impact it can have

"The harrowing impact of drug use on the lives and relationships of people remains a huge focus for us as a District.

"We're grateful for the support from the local community, and I want to take this opportunity to encourage anyone with information, or concerns, about drugs in your area, call us on 101. The quicker we receive information the quicker we can act. Even if you think it's not significant, it could make a difference.”
