The entrance to the cemetery in Hartington Road has reportedly been sealed off while officers on foot search the area.

NPAS Redhill has been circling the area since about 9.35pm and is still up at 10pm.

A police spokesman said: “We were called by a member of the public suggested there was a drug deal in May Road on the corner of the cemetery and the suspects ran from us.

“Because it’s a fairly rural area, the police helicopter is assisting with the search.”

    Maybe some officers can spare some time to arrest the drug deals that go on a daily basis on north road then. (No helicopter needed)
