  3. Drug dealers 'working from home' during lockdown

    Drug dealers are having to change the way they operate because of social distancing and lockdown measures, police say.

    Det Supt Mike Allen, from Nottinghamshire Police's serious and organised crime unit, said the force's statistics on drug offences "have remained consistent", despite restrictions in place to ensure people stay at home during the coronavirus pandemic.

    He said officers were "constantly reviewing" ways to deal with drug crime, and asked for members of the public to report any suspicious activity.

  7. Moorland fire 'caused by out-of-control barbecue'

    Four men from Leeds have been charged under new legislation enacted to tackle the coronavirus pandemic after about four hectares of moorland went up in smoke.

    Derbyshire Police said the group, who are all in their early 20s, were questioned in connection with the blaze, which happened near the A628 at Woodhead on Good Friday.
