A teenage boy and a 46-year-old man were arrested in Weston-super-Mare last night (Thursday) on suspicion of drug offences.

The Weston man and 17-year-old boy, who is from London, were arrested by police in Station Road just before 7pm.

The pair were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
