Police are set to flood estates around Sheffield on Monday in a new blitz on crime.

Extra officers will be on duty around Darnall, Woodhouse, Foxhill and Page Hall during the day.

The crackdown is part of Operation Duxford, a South Yorkshire-wide initiative to engage with the community, raise police visibility and protect vulnerable people.

Officers have previously executed warrants and conducted visits to protect vulnerable people in other areas where the initiative has been rolled out.

In October, a planned raid in Barnsley carried out as part of the operation uncovered equipment being used to harvest cannabis.

South Yorkshire Police tweeted today: "We are bringing #OpDuxford to Sheffield on Monday. Expect to see additional officers around Darnall, Woodhouse, Foxhill and Page Hall.
