Seven people have been arrested after police seized drugs worth almost £700,000.

Cocaine with a street value of about £695,000 and a small amount of cannabis were recovered during a raid in Peterculter, on the outskirts of Aberdeen, yesterday.

The drugs seizure is the largest from a single address in the north-east since the creation of Police Scotland last April.

All are from the local area, police said.
