Eight dangerous tools, which include three kitchen knives, a hammer and a cultivator were recovered from an address in Northampton by plain-clothed officers.

The address was being used to supply Class A drugs but upon arrival yesterday (September 4), an array of high-risk tools were seized by the Northampton Proactive Team to, they said, protect the public from harm.
