Updates: Police cordon off Stoke-on-Trent road as undercover officers swoop



Police have cordoned off a Stoke-on-Trent road as undercover officers search a house and a wheelie bin this evening.

Tape has been put up outside a semi-detached house in Allendale Walk, Blurton, today (December 1).

Officers can be seen going in and out of the address.

An ambulance is also parked further up the street but it is unclear at this stage whether it is linked to the incident.

An eye-witness told StokeonTrentLive: “There are about four undercover police cars and the end part of the road has been cordoned off.

“There’s also tape up outside a house and the officers have been going through one of the bins.

“All the officers are in plain clothes so I’m not really sure what’s going on but it looks serious. They keep going in and out of the address.

“There’s lots of people standing around and watching.”

StokeonTrentLive is awaiting a statement from Staffordshire Police on this unfolding incident.
