Two police officers from Greater Manchester Police have been charged with dealing class A drugs, following an investigation by the police anti-corruption unit.
Until their arrests, after which they were suspended, PC Reeve and PC Jackson served in the Tactical Aid Unit, which specialises in dealing with large gatherings, football matches and riots.
Following the investigation, PC Reeve and PC Jackson have both been charged with assisting in the commission of supplying class A drugs, possession of a class A drug and possession of a class B drugs.
Three other people, none of whom have been named, have also been charged following the same investigation.

Shortly after their arrest, the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) became involved in the case. In a statement, it said: "We're supervising an investigation conducted by Greater Manchester Police into allegations against two officers concerning the supply of drugs.
