A MAN and a woman were arrested and heroin was seized in two drugs raids in a Yorkshire seaside town.

Humberside Police, acting on information from the public, simultaneously raided properties in in Haslemere Avenue and Albion Terrace, Bridlington, on Wednesday morning.

Sgt Georgina Kirkwood said: "As a result of the warrant in Haslemere Avenue, we recovered up to 100 ‘deals’ of what we believe to be heroin and a 33-year-old man and a 31-year-old woman found at the address remain in our custody.

"A second man, who was in the property at Albion Terrace, has been released without charge after an extensive search of the address. We know the serious harm caused – often to the most vulnerable in our communities - by the supply and misuse of drugs and we’re committed to tackling this and prosecuting those involved in the trade."

Sgt Kirkwood urged the public to report any suspicions to the force on 101.

She said: "Please don’t underestimate the role you can play in helping us to do this. You know when something is not right in your area and you’re great at picking up the phone and letting us know. Please keep doing it.

"With your information, coupled with the intelligence gathered by our officers out on the streets, we are able to put together operations like the one carried out here today, to tackle and prevent drug related crime and bring dealers to justice."
