THREE people were arrested after a drugs bust near Southwick on Tuesday.

Two men in their 50s and a woman in her 40s were taken to custody on suspicion of making class B drugs in an industrial unit in Hoopers Pool. Officers made the arrests after being granted a warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

Police guarded the estate from Tuesday to Friday, making sure no one entered while bomb squads and forensic teams cleared up the scene.

The two men have since been released on conditional bail while the woman was released under investigation.

These arrests follow three days of mystery in the area as locals were curious by the police presence.
