PS Alice Bennett said: “Friday's proactive warrant was based on good intelligence around the illegal supply of drugs from this establishment. I hope this shows we will continue to work hard to keep drugs off our streets and reduce crime that brings misery to the people of our community.

“I urge anyone with concerns about the supply of drugs to please get in touch, we act on all reports that we receive”.


The pub's licence has been suspended pending a review in the wake of the warrant and arrests.
