Two men have been arrested in Haverhill over suspected drug offences as police continue the fight against county lines gangs.

Officers from Operation Sentinel supported by the Safer Neighbourhood Team had reason to stop a man on Withersfield Road in Haverhill on Monday.

He was arrested on suspicion of possession of Class A drugs and taken to Bury St Edmunds Investigation Centre for questioning.

Further enquiries led officers to a property at Burton End in the town where a 17-year-old was found and searched.

He was found to be in possession of £700 in cash and was arrested on suspicion of possession of Class A drugs and money laundering.
