THREE people were arrested after early-morning raids in Durham.

About 20 police officers swooped on homes in Front Street and Sherburn Road in Durham City and Grey Gables and Agathas Close, both in Brandon, as part of Operation Relentless.

The force believed the addresses were involved in the supply of drugs or housed stolen property. A 33-year-old man from Sherburn Road has been charged with possessing cocaine, a Class A drug, and will appear at court at a later date.

A 36-year-old woman was given a caution for possession of cannabis.

A 41-year-old was arrested on suspicion of possessing amphetamine.
