Cash seized by Devon and Cornwall Police from drug dealers has been donated to the Dame Hannah Rogers Trust which provides education, therapy and care for people with profound physical disabilities.

The £1,000 gift is going towards the installation of a much needed wheelchair swing at the charity's Ivybridge base.

The funds were the proceeds from Operation Greaves, a major operation against dealers in Devon and Cornwall which resulted in 30 people receiving jail terms totalling more than 140 years, the seizure of £90,000 in cash and £1.3 million worth of drugs.

    I wish the police would come and raid the dealers next door to me...I'm not sure how many times I need to tell them?
