Three of the suspects were also held on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon in a private place.

PC James Brown, of the Ashfield Operation Reacher team, said: “This coordinated series of intelligence-led raids should send a very clear warning to anyone involved in selling illegal drugs.

“These substances are a blight on our communities and bring with them only misery and crime.

“We will continue to listen to local residents as we maintain the pressure on local suspects – building our intelligence and putting in doors where we need to.

“So, if you are involved in the trade in illegal drugs there’s every chance we’ll be paying you a visit next.”
