A missing child, cash and drugs were found in a series of police raids on a Sheffield estate this morning.

Officers carried out three simultaneous raids in Broomhall in a crackdown on drug dealing in the city.

They said a 16-year-old child reported missing elsewhere in the country was found in one of the houses searched.

Drugs and cash were also found in the raids and three arrests were made.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: "As a result of these warrants three people have been arrested, a missing 16-year-old child from another force area has been located and a quantity of drugs and cash have been seized.

"The investigation is ongoing.

"We are keen to hear from anybody within the local community who may have information about crime and drug dealing in the local area.

"We will treat any information confidentially and reports can be made anonymously.
