A man from Little Hulton is one of a group of eight people charged with a Class A drug conspiracy after a series of dawn raids.

The raids were carried out by Greater Manchester Police officers in the early hours of Thursday July 20.

Daniel Odunayo, 22, from Little Hulton, was one of the group from across Little Hulton, Salford and Chadderton, including four teenagers, who have now been charged.

Detective Inspector Rebecca McGuigan, of Greater Manchester Police's Salford Challenger organised crime team, said: “These results are testament to the hard-work of our dedicated officers.

"Their efforts have resulted in us taking a significant amount of class A drugs off the streets.

“Let this be a warning to any criminals operating across Greater Manchester – we are coming for you and will continue to rid our streets of drugs.”

Odunayo, of Petunia Walk, was charged with conspiracy to supply Class A drugs and money laundering.
