Five men have been charged in connection with alleged drugs offences, police have said.

Three men aged 49, 36 and 21 are expected to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court today following the recovery of heroin and crack cocaine in the Spital area of Aberdeen worth an estimated £7,000 yesterday.

Two men aged 30 and 17 are also expected to appear at court today following the recovery of cannabis with an estimated street value of £19,000.
