Twenty people have been arrested in dawn raids carried out by police targeting suspected drug dealers.

At least 20 houses in the Anfield, Everton, Kirkdale and Walton areas of Liverpool were searched earlier.

Police arrested a woman and 19 men and drugs, cash, a van and drug paraphernalia were seized.

Those arrested will be questioned on suspicion of being involved in the supply of heroin and crack cocaine, Merseyside Police said.

Det Supt Tim Keelan said: "The amount of information that we receive from members of the public has been vital to us carrying out such operations and we would urge local residents to continue talking with officers."
