A woman in possession of a class A drug was reported to police thanks to a tip-off.
Cambridgeshire Police were told of the disabled toilets in the Cloisters in Ely city centre being used for drug-related activity over recent months.
But following a tip-off today (Tuesday), they were able to approach two of those involved.
A police spokesperson said: “We have received a number of reports about anti-social behaviour of this nature in the last few months.
“A woman was reported for being in possession of a class A drug, and an investigation is ongoing.”
A man was also spoken to at the scene but police will take no further action against him.
Nobody was arrested.
