Police were seen patrolling key routes through the city centre as part of Operation Sidewinder in a bid to tackle drug use and knife crime.

PC Neil Wickstone from the Neighbourhood Team said: “Operation Sidewinder is first and foremost a drugs operation, but in cases such as this, it shows itself to be a vital tool in other ways, including the prevention of violent crime.
