It was another busy day for the plainclothes Proactive Team, who specialise in stopping drug dealers and violent criminals.

Officers also stopped two men who were seen exchanging some items.

One was arrested for supplying drugs and proceeds of crime.

In custody, he too produced illicit items from his underpants, this time some deal bags and cannabis.
