Two flats were raided in Letchworth this morning with police officers seizing class A drugs.

Officers entered two flats in Ivel Court at approximately 8am, with class A drugs found in one property.

The raid was carried out by Letchworth and Baldock’s Safer Neighbourhood Team, North Herts Operation Scorpion Team and the Operational Support Group.

No arrests have been made in connection with the operation but investigations are on-going.

Sgt Alan Clarke, who leads Letchworth and Baldock Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “We executed these raids today following police investigations and information that has come from the public.

“Together we can work to keep Letchworth safe and I would urge the local community to always contact us if they suspect drugs use in their local areas.

“The supply and use of drugs can have devastating consequences. We will not tolerate it in Letchworth and will do all that we can to drive it out. Local people can be rest assured that any information given to us will be treated with the utmost confidence.
