Cannabis worth £200,000 has been seized by police in Fife in a campaign to target organised crime groups.

Two people, who were found in possession of the drug, were arrested in west Fife on Thursday.

Detectives said they have now seized more than £1m worth of drugs since their campaign began in April.

The two are expected to appear from custody at Dunfermline Sheriff Court in connection with the drugs haul.

Detective Superintendent Garry McEwan, head of crime management, said: "These latest arrests send out a very strong message to those involved in the supply of drugs within Fife that their evil trade will not be tolerated."

He added: "People in our local communities hold the key to continued success and I would again urge members of the public to continue to alert Fife Constabulary to any concerns and provide information regarding the activities of those involved in serious organised crime and assist us in removing harmful drugs from our streets."
