Suspected Haverhill drug dealers arrested in police raids

Police have arrested and charged two men in connection with drug offences in the Haverhill area over a period of 11 months.

The arrests were made yesterday as part of ongoing work to ensure the county remains a hostile environment for those involved in the supply of illegal drugs.

Two warrants were carried out at separate addresses in Ilford and Margate.
