Police say they have uncovered a quantity of drugs in searches of properties in the Cookstown area.

Two males were arrested during yesterday's operation which involved sniffer dogs.

A number of people have been detained in the Mid Ulster District over the past week following the recent drugs-linked death of a man in Moneymore.

One other man was in a serious condition and several people required hospital treatment after an incident at a house in the south Derry village.
