Nine people have been charged with drugs offences following a series of arrests in raids across Newport.

The seven men and two women were due to appear before Cwmbran magistrates on Saturday charged with conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.

It comes after raids on properties in Maindee and Alway on Thursday, police said.

The operation was led by Tarian, the southern Wales regional organised crime unit, working with Gwent police.
