Police have made an arrest after discovering a large quantity of suspected class A drugs in Keighley.

Officers were on proactive patrols in the Keighley East ward when they observed an ongoing drug deal. 

Those involved in the deal attempted to make off on foot but one of the males was detained. 

Searching under the Misuse of Drugs Act, police uncovered a large amount of drugs and significant quantity of cash.

The suspect was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply controlled drugs and remains in police custody.

Enquiries are ongoing, West Yorkshire Police said.

The arrest forms part of an ongoing operation known as Programme Precision, created to tackle the supply of drugs in the Keighley area.
