Officers raided a house in Bentley this morning and arrested a 25-year-old man for possession and with intent to supply after a number of 'cannabis edibles’ and equipment to make them were seized at the property.

A spokesman said: "One to be aware of for any parents in the local area, or anyone who may come across gummies in similar packaging.”

In recent months, forces across the country have seized a number of the cannabis infused sweets which are often designed to look like traditional children’s sweets, including gummy bears.
