A MAN from Stevenage was arrested on Wednesday after a series of early morning police raids.

The 36-year-old man was one of 11 people to be arrested on suspicion of supplying class A drugs following raids at 17 addresses in Ware, Hertford and north London.

The warrants were executed under Operation Scorpion, a Hertfordshire-wide crackdown which has seen two similar raids carried out in Hitchin during the last seven weeks.
