A man and woman have been arrested after a drugs raid uncovered suspected heroin and cannabis in Hartlepool.

Police executed a drugs warrant at an address on Westmoreland Walk this morning.

A 35-year-old woman and a 41-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of possession of class A and B drugs.

Cleveland Police said due to an increase in reports of antisocial behaviour at the address and reports of suspected drugs activity, the tenant at the address was served with an eviction notice.

Sergeant Adrian Dack from Hartlepool Community Safety Team said: “We would like to thank members of the community for coming forward with information regarding drugs activity in their area.
