    Police say they made at least five arrests in Derby city centre over the weekend as part of a crackdown on the use of formerly legal highs such as Spice and Black Mamba.

    Derbyshire Police said its officers had also used police powers to banish at least ten users from the city centre for 48 hours.

    The drugs, known as synthetic cannabinoids, are currently a major priority for forces around the country following complaints they lead to "zombie-like" or erratic behaviour in users.
