Four people have been arrested on suspicion of drugs-related offences following searches in Banbridge, Dromore and Belfast.

A PSNI spokesperson confirmed that three men and a woman had been arrested after searches of two vehicles in Belfast and a number of properties in Belfast and Co Down on Sunday (July 10).
