In a Facebook post, the team said said: “At present the Parson Cross team are managing the policing of coronavirus, which is a huge challenge in itself.

“However, tackling drug crime remains a key priority for us.

“We want people to feel safe and we will continue to shut down any properties where we suspect illegal activity is taking place.

“That was the case again today on Crowder Crescent when we had cause to remove five people from the property which had become a drugs den.
