Eight people have been arrested as part of a police crackdown on illegal drugs in Londonderry.

Around 70 officers carried out 19 searches throughout the city on Tuesday, including in the Creggan, Strathfoyle and Galliagh areas.

There were five seizures of herbal cannabis, one of cannabis resin and seven of suspected methadrone.

"Operation Denbreaker is to stop drugs being sold and children having access," said Ch Insp Jon Burrows.
