More arrests in drug crackdown
Police raid
Homes were targeted in a second day of raids
Police in Nottingham have carried out a second day of early morning raids at houses in Sneinton and St Ann's.

Four more people have been arrested and five more homes searched by detectives and sniffer dogs.

Six people have already been charged with supplying class A drugs after the raids on homes in the districts on Wednesday.

Police say the action is part of Operation Stealth, the force's anti-drug crackdown.

Detective Sergeant Nigel Malik said: "We are more than happy with the result of these raids which are a culmination of a six month covert operation into drug dealing in the St Ann's and Sneinton areas.

"The 10 arrests in two days follow on from a further 20 arrests during similar raids at a variety of addresses over the past few weeks."
