Four people were arrested after a number of items including drugs and a crossbow were seized at a raid in Scunthorpe.

Two men and one woman were arrested on suspicion of possessing a class A drug with intent to supply and possession of a firearm after the raid at a property on Canterbury Close on Friday, August 10.

A second woman was arrested on suspicion of supplying a controlled drug and possession of a firearm after the raid, which uncovered a quantity of drugs, cash, suspected stolen property and a crossbow.

The four people arrested under the Misuse of Drugs Act have all been released under investigation and further enquiries are ongoing, police said.
