DRUG raids have been carried out in Tranmere in a bid to crackdown on crime in the area.

Officers from the Local Policing team carried out the raid at St Catherines Gardens on Thursday, October 3 following information about drug dealing and associated crimes in the area.

Police also spoke with local residents to address any concerns they may have about anti-social behaviour in the area.

Sergeant Alan McKeon said: “This activity has been well-received so far, and I want to thank everyone who has spoken to us and provided information.

“Our communities can be our eyes, ears, mouths and noses, and we are grateful for everything you tell us. We will keep taking positive action to target those we suspect of causing fear and harm.

“You can tell us what you know in a number of ways, by speaking local officers, contact us via our social media desk @MerPolCC or Wirral Police on Facebook and Twitter, or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, a charity which is completely independent of police.”
