DRUGS were seized after police caught youths smoking cannabis in the woods.

Four youths were seen smoking the Class B drug in the woodland area by the A326, near the New Forest.

Officers in the Totton Neighbourhoods Team stopped and searched them, and seized some cannabis, a bong, and a grinder containing the drug.

The incident was reported at around 7pm on Saturday night.

Totton Police wrote on social media: "The youths have been dealt with by officers appropriately.

"Just a polite reminder cannabis is illegal and we will take it off anyone in possession of it. Just don’t do drugs."

They then warned members of the public that they "will sniff you out".
