THREE people have been arrested after police carried out a drugs raid at a house in Clacton this morning.

The pre-planned operation saw a warrant executed at a house in Estuary Crescent at about 7.30am.

Officers were acting on information received by Clacton's neighbourhood policing team that suggested individuals in the property were involved in dealing drugs.

A 20 year-old man, a 47 year-old woman and an 18-year-old woman from Clacton were all arrested on suspicion of possession with the intent to supply after officers found a quantity of what is believed to be a Class C drug.
