The laughing gas was found alongside a "large amount of cash" after police arrested two suspected drug dealers in Netherton on Friday.

Some of the canisters were found in a car the men had been travelling in along with several phones, cash and cannabis, with the rest discovered when officers searched addresses linked to the suspects.
