Plain clothed police officers swooped on two Cornish villages earlier today to seize illegal drugs.

The drugs busts were carried out in St Day and Lanner.

Camborne and Redruth Police team said that "quantities of illegal drugs" had been recovered in both villages as part of the organised operation.

Describing it as a "proactive operation", the team said: "We would like to encourage the public to make contact with us if they are concerned about drug related issues in our communities."

Anyone with information can contact officers via the Devon and Cornwall Police website, or pass it on anonymously via Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111 or at
