Arrests After Daventry Drugs Raids

Youngsters in Daventry are running up drug debts of over £500 and are being threatened with violence if they don't pay up.

That's according to Northamptonshire Police who launched a major campaign to find the cannabis dealers and put a stop to the trade. High-profile raids have targeted houses where some of the suspects live. The police made four arrests.

Reporter Martin Heath joined the police on their raids. Stuart talks to Chris Heaton Harris, the Conservative MP for Daventry, to Sylvia Hughes, the Chair of Crimestoppers for Northamptonshire, and to Jane Deamer, Chief Executive of the charity "Service Six", based in Wellingborough, which provides support and counselling for young people in Northamptonshire.
