Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) officers were called to four addresses on Monday (March 11) as part of an investigation into the production of class A drugs.

The masked police officers detained four men following the raids at Padholme Road, Alma Road, Westmoreland Gardens and Sheepwalk.

Specialist search teams from Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue and the East of England Ambulance Service were called in “as a safety precaution”.

On Monday, a spokesman for Cambridgeshire Police said: “Four men have beds in our cells tonight following warrants into what we believe is production of crystal meth.”
