Four men have been arrested as part of a police operation to crack down on rural crime in Northumberland.

Officers carried out a string of dawn raids at properties in Stobhill, Blyth and Bedlington on Tuesday as part of an investigation into drug supply, burglary and theft in the area.

As a result, four men were detained on suspicion of burglary, handling stolen goods, public order and insurance fraud.

A number of suspected stolen items were also seized, including a cable locating system worth almost £2,000.
