Beat Manager Police Constable Lee Ryan said: “We are working hard to flush out criminal activity in the Manton area and have been carrying out lots of activity in order to gather intelligence on areas that we need to be looking at.

“We’re also working with the local community who are contributing to our evidence gathering and we encourage residents to report any of their concerns to us on 101 so we can act accordingly.

“Our aim is to make the area as safe and enjoyable as it possibly can be and we take a strict approach towards any form of drug offending as it fuels all manner of crimes and preys on the most vulnerable in our society.”
