The tweet did not give any further information about exactly where the drugs were discovered.

There have been several drug-related arrests in the village in the past few months.

In October police arrested a boy aged just 15, and seized a haul of suspected drugs including 10 packets of white powder and 23 packets of a substance resembling cannabis.

In September drugs and weapons were seized after police raided a home in Chinnor.
