Police have launched a crackdown on drugs misuse on public transport in Inverness following complaints from the public.

Officers from the Inverness city centre police team worked with the police dog section and British Transport Police on Saturday in an effort to identify culprits carrying controlled substances.

The operation was carried out within both the city’s bus and train stations.

Sergeant Chris Murray, from the city centre policing team, said: “Following complaints around individuals using the bus and train stations conveying or using controlled drugs we have worked with the British Transport Police and other partners to address these concerns.
