Detective Superintendent Jason Hudson, Titan’s head of operations said: “The coordinated arrests this morning come as a result of an intensive and painstaking 12 month long investigation by my team.

“Our actions have delivered a massive blow against the organised criminals operating in the Manchester and North West region, and we continue to send a strong message to others involved in this type of crime that we will act on information we receive and we will be knocking on your door.

“We remain committed to tackling those involved in drugs offences by dismantling their hierarchies and putting those involved before the courts.

“I would urge decent, law-abiding members of the community who have information about criminality where they live to share that information with their local police force or Crimestoppers so that positive action can be taken.”
