A spokesperson for the Sheffield Central Neighbourhood Policing Team said the raid was carried out following "complaints regarding the address."

They added: "The occupant was also served with a closure order warning, and we will now look to build a case to prevent people from visiting the address to prevent further problems."

But the day of action did not end there for the team.

Shortly after a police community support officer spotted a man who was wanted for recall to prison and with the help of an officer quickly managed to detain him. He was taken to Sheepcote Lane Police Station.

The man was arrested and taken to court.

Officers were later called out to deal with a suspected shoplifting incident.

A spokesperson for the police team said: "PCSO’s on the late shift became involved with a suspected shoplifter who was not being compliant with security staff.

"This is also just a small snapshot of the overall work on going in the city centre, as the response teams were also extremely busy covering the incoming calls from members of the public and investigations."
