Sgt Phil Priestley said: “Our focus on the address was related to an increase in antisocial behaviour and the negative effect on the quality of life that was caused to vulnerable people in the immediate area.

“We are particularly determined to attack criminality that harms the most vulnerable people in our communities, and it is important to reassure the public that where we identify that this is happening, we will will respond robustly.”

A woman, 26, was arrested on suspicion of possessing class A substances with intent to supply.
