PC Liam Stewart, from Sheffield’s Fortify Team, which deals with organised crime, said: “This is another great result which I hope demonstrates our commitment to removing drugs from the streets of Sheffield.

“I would like to encourage members of the public to contact us with any information they may have around properties that are being used in the cultivation or supply of drugs.”
