Eyewitnesses described the white vehicle and surrounding area being searched in the street, which was deserted amid lockdown. 

“We heard loads of cars pulling up and dogs barking.There were about six police cars searching this one specific white car,” one said. 

“They had sniffer dogs in and out of the cars and looking around.

“It looked like they might have arrested a young lad in his 20s and a woman about the same age.”
