Officers in the Dawley and Malinslee Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) carried out a warrant in Eleanor's Close, in the Aqueduct area of Telford on Wednesday.

The video shows a man being led away in handcuffs with his hands behind his back. The door of a caravan on the drive of a house suffered damage. The door at the property was also nearly off its hinges.

Telford Police posted the video on Twitter, formerly X, saying that a warrant was carried out last week, forming part of the Dawley and Malinslee Safer Neighbourhood Day of action.

"One man was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply. He has since been released under investigation while enquiries continue," they added.

In the video PC Sam Bertie, of the SNT, said the warrant was executed after they had received intelligence from members of the public about drugs misuse, and supply leading to anti social behaviour in he area.

Officers say they also seized class B drugs and an air rifle.

PC Bertie said: “The warrant was carried out after residents raised concerns about drugs and anti-social behaviour in the area.

“This warrant shows we will not tolerate drugs within our community and will continue to act on information given to us about drugs.

“Drugs have a negative impact on our communities and can lead to other localised criminality and the harm and exploitation of vulnerable people.”
