COMMUNITY police officers carried out a drugs raid at an address in a coastal village.

The Clacton Community Policing Team executed a drugs warrant in Tudor Green, Jaywick, shortly before 8am yesterday.

Evidence of cannabis cultivation was found and a substantial amount of cut cannabis was recovered.

No arrests were made and the force's investigation is ongoing.

Sergeant Ben Felton has now sent a message to anyone thinking of growing or dealing illegal substances.

He said: “This is our second proactive drugs warrant in Jaywick in a month. 

“My team are committed to supporting the residents of Jaywick.

“We are disrupting drug dealers and removing their product from the streets.

“If you engage in this type of activity you can expect an early morning wake up call from the Clacton CPT.”
