A police spokesman said: "The force wants to ensure the county remains a hostile environment for those involved in the supply of drugs and provide reassurance to Suffolk residents.

"Our local communities have an important role to play in this too. Don’t turn a blind eye. Talk to us about your concerns and we will work together to resolve the issue."
