Police in Leicester seized £2,500 in cash, a quantity of cannabis and arrested three men in a number of raids across the city.

Five addresses in Berners Street, Pluto Close, Myrtle Road, Osborne Road and Hildyard Road were searched in a pre-planned operation on Wednesday.

Three men, aged 18, 19 and 21, were all arrested over with drugs offences.
