Two men in East Lothian have been arrested and charged following police recovery of drugs worth more than £300.

Officers from the Haddington and Musselburgh community policing teams carried out an intelligence-led search of a property in Hardgate, Haddington, on Saturday, March 15.

As a result, 15g of cannabis and 140 diazepam tablets were seized, along with various drugs paraphernalia.

The recovered drugs are worth £200 and £140 respectively and the pair, aged 17 and 46, are due to appear in court at a later date.
