Detective Inspector Andy Dunlop said: "We will focus our resources on those who we believe are likely to cause the most harm within the community.

"Heroin can kill - that is a fact - and anyone who is suspected of involvement in the supply of this drug can expect to be arrested by police and presented before the courts.
