As part of Operation Lamsters, secluded spots in Wepre Park and Dock Road have been identified as places where dealers and users meet.

Officers are also using mobile cameras as part of a wider crackdown on anti-social behaviour.

Officers are working in conjunction with town and county council initiatives to tackle these hotspots.

North Flintshire Inspector, Alison Sharp said;

“Our regular patrols combined with local schemes to tidy up places by cutting back undergrowth, trees and grass will make them less secluded and therefore less attractive to those involved with illegal drugs.

“We are also moving mobile cameras to different locations regularly as part of a wider effort to combat this issue and antic-social behaviour in general and to demonstrate to residents and businesses that we are listening to their concerns.”
