Detective Inspector Allen Shaw said: "We are committed to tackling the illegal supply of drugs to our communities and associated anti-social behaviour.

"We rely on our communities to support us in this and report any concerns they have to us. This continued support and assistance is appreciated and we will continue to make it clear that the illegal use of drugs which only serves to spread misery in communities will not be tolerated and these seizures outline our commitment to robustly targeting those who choose to involve themselves with such activity.

"Anyone with concerns should contact us on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you would prefer to remain anonymous."
