Police in Warwickshire and West Mercia have launched a joint plan to tackle illegal drugs.

The new strategy will see more officers working in schools while also tackling trafficking and the supply of illegal drugs.

In the last two years the two forces have seized drugs with a combined street value of more than £10m.

They said their recent alliance would mean a consistent approach across a large part of the Midlands

The two forces cover Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire.

The plan is also expected to see stronger links with local councils and other agencies across the area in a bid to provide better support for drug users.

Det Supt Graeme Pallister said the forces wanted to "prevent the next generation of users" while targeting dealer networks.
