Four men were arrested in yesterday's drug bust on a student house in Crookesmoor.

Police have released a statement saying the raid was carried out on the property on Spring View Road in relation to the possible possession of Class A drugs.

Four men, two aged 22 and two aged 21, were arrested on suspicion of the importation of Class A drugs and being concerned in the supply of a Class A drug.
