Ten people have been arrested following drugs raids in Dorset.

Seven men and three women were held following the early-morning searches in the Ivel Close area of Dorchester.

Officers seized mobile phones, large quantities of cash and substances believed to be illegal drugs.

Dorset Police said one man was found hiding inside a bed and was arrested on suspicion of a previous burglary offence.

Sgt Ged Want, of Dorchester Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: "An ongoing initiative is under way in Dorchester aimed at disrupting alleged drug networks and taking robust enforcement action."

The 10 were held on suspicion of offences including possession with intent to supply, theft of an unattended vehicle, money laundering and burglary.
