Detective Sergeant Sam Harris said: "We are committed to working with local and national partners to support those who are vulnerable and tackle serious and organised crime.

"This investigation underlines our commitment to the Serious Organised Crime Taskforce and the country's Serious Organised Crime Strategy."

Inspector Stephen Morris from Merseyside Police said: “Merseyside Police, through Project Medusa, regularly deploys to other force areas to target county lines, and this joint investigation with Police Scotland shows our commitment to tackling serious and organised crime across borders.

“We will continue to relentlessly target those crime groups who cowardly exploit vulnerable people in our communities.”
