PC Stone, who led the operation after acting on local intelligence, said: “Drugs can blight local communities and we need to get them off the streets when we can."

Inspector Lee Page, Safer Neighbourhood Team, added: "This followed information received from the local community and I would encourage anyone concerned about drug activity in their area to call us on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."

Two stolen cars were also found as part of the raid.

Officers said they were discovered after some "good old fashioned snooping around".

They added that the cars were stolen only a few days ago but had seen better days.
