CLASS A drugs including cocaine and heroin have been seized as part of a police operation.

The drugs were seized from addresses as part of the 12 Days of Christmas campaign.

The campaign, focusing on drugs and stolen goods, is being run by neighbourhood policing teams across Middlesbrough.

Officers also recovered a haul of counterfeit and stolen goods, including clothing, shoes and headphones, from a car boot sale yesterday (Sunday December 16).

As part of the operation, there will be a series of stop checks on known or suspected criminals and vehicles police believe are being used to commit crime.

One disqualified driver and two with no insurance were stopped on Wednesday, December 12.

The operation will run until Christmas Eve.
