“As ever with any action of this kind, we’re hugely indebted to members of the public who provide information about drug criminality in their community.
“Each individual report allows us to draw up a picture of what is happening in our towns and cities, allowing us to put a plan of action in place, like the one carried out yesterday.
"We’d continue to urge people to contact us if they witness such issues in their neighbourhoods.”
