Two women aged 55 and 58 and a 52-year-old man were arrested and detained in connection with alleged drugs offences.

A 61-year-old man was also arrested and is being held over alleged drugs and firearms offences.

Detective Inspector Jim Biggam said: "Drugs and firearms have absolutely no place in our communities and we have specialist teams of officers working on a daily basis to target those individuals who engage in serious and organised crime.

"Intelligence from members of the public is vital to the work our officers do and I would continue to encourage people to pass on information and engage with the police to help us tackle this issue.

"Anyone with information or concerns regarding serious and organised crime in their community can contact their local police station via 101."
