TWO men from London have been arrested for drugs offences in a housing estate near Oxford city centre. 

Police said they made the arrests in Friars Wharf after a call from the public on November 4. 

Drugs, cash and phones were also seized as a crack-down on these types of offences continues. 

Working with Oxford City Council, the force has targeted resources at cleaning up Friar's Wharf recently after several complaints from residents about blatant dealing. 

The Oxford Times:

A string of other incidents, unconnected to the latest arrests, prompted the action.

More lighting, regular patrols and cutting back foliage are among the measures that have been taken. 

Thames Valley Police said the most recent arrests were a result of a 'combined effort' between the Oxford Neighbourhood Police Team and the Oxford public spaces drugs taskforce.

Police Commander Joe Kidman tweeted to say it was 'great teamwork'.
