“The advice is simple, do not take illegal drugs and do not take prescription drugs that have not been prescribed to you.”

He added: “We would ask members of the public for their continued support and co-operation in tackling drugs. Drug dealing is a concern for all in the community and tackling the supply, distribution and sale of illegal drugs is a policing priority.”
