Five suspects have been released on bail and one remains in police custody as investigations continue.

Detective Sergeant Christopher Mavers, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This a very large policing operation involving more than 20 officers and I am pleased we were able to bring so many suspects into custody at the same time.

“Drug related crime is a blight on our communities and something we are working hard every day to tackle with a mixture of overt and covert actions.

“Investigations into this matter have been going on for some time and will continue over the coming weeks and months.”
