Västerås police arrested eight people overnight on suspicion of drugs offences throughout the district of Västmanland.

The swoop was the result of a special anti-drugs initiative, according to the local newspaper, VLT.

"Most of them were arrested in Västerås. They were under the influence and had a lot of different drugs on them. There could be more arrests," said Roger Götheden, duty officer at Västmanland police to TT.
