Police arrested a 17-year-old and seized a large quantity of cash after a member of the public suspected drug related activity.

Officers were called shortly before 1:30pm yesterday by someone reporting suspicious activity in Buckthorn Drive, Haydon Wick.

The young boy from the Surrey area was arrested on suspicion of being involved in the supply of Class A drugs.

He has been released under investigation while their enquiries continue.
