Two men were arrested in Sheffield’s notorious Page Hall neighbourhood for possession with intent to supply suspected Class A drugs.

Thursday, 26th November 2020, 4:25 pm

The men, aged 24 and 36, were arrested on Tuesday (24 November) after officers stopped a vehicle in the Hinde Street area and recovered a quantity of suspected drugs and cash.

One of the men fled the vehicle but was later detained “without incident” alongside the other suspect, police said.

The troubled suburb continues to be blighted by a number of issues including fly-tipping, overcrowded homes, litter, rats, anti-social behaviour and large groups congregating on the streets at all times of the day and night.
