It is important that, if possible, you make a note of all the vehicles and where possible remember the description of the dealers and jot it down. All the information then needs to be passed onto your local police force, via their non-emergency number, or to the local drugs line through Crimestoppers.

Please do not put your own or another's personal safety at risk. The police will then investigate the incident. It is quite likely that the Police will not attend immediately as they will be gathering more evidence from other sources so that a successful prosecution can be brought.

Be assured that the police take the fight against drugs very seriously and we will do our utmost to help clear up the streets.
