Two men have been charged following a police crackdown on drug crimes in Great Yarmouth.

Nathan Hamilton, 28, of Princess Crescent, London and Blare Carpenter-Angol, 26, of Moreton Road, London, have been charged with conspiracy to supply heroin and crack cocaine in Great Yarmouth between July and October 2018.

Norfolk Police said they stopped a vehicle which the pair were travelling in on Fullers Hill at 3pm on Thursday.

This was part of a week-long campaign in which police targeted criminals dealing crack cocaine and heroin.

A spokesperson for the police said it carried out warrants at addresses in Norwich, Great Yarmouth and King’s Lynn.

The campaign was part of a wider initiative called Operation Gravity which launched in December 2016 in response to an increase in violent crime associated with class A drug dealing and use.

Since its launch Norfolk police have arrested 765 people in connection with class A drug offences.
