A "significant amount of drugs," phones and cash were seized after officers chased down two men and arrested two others.

Officers were carrying out enquiries on Woodchurch Lane, in Prenton, Wirral, before they saw two men run off from a top floor flat.

The two suspects, aged in their 20s, were chased down on foot by officers, who arrested them.

When returning to the address, police found two further men inside and they seized suspected cocaine, cannabis, phones and other items.
