During these searches a substantial quantity of suspected cannabis, drugs paraphernalia and in excess of £10,000 cash was seized.

Police also seized a number of dogs of which they had serious welfare concerns. Some of these dogs have serious injuries, images of which would not be suitable for release. The dogs are now safe and receiving veterinary treatment.
