The top 10 drugs hotspots in Leeds - the areas with the most reports of drug offences - have been revealed.

The figures are the latest in the Yorkshire Evening Post's crime hotspots web series, in which we're shining a light on a different type of crime every day, according to the official police statistics for the city.

A Freedom of Information Act request submitted to West Yorkshire Police by the Yorkshire Evening Post has revealed the 10 policing wards with the most reports of drug offences between April 1 2016 and March 31 2017, the most recent full year of figures available.

The figures are broken down into 'policing wards' - these are the areas which police classify and use to divide resources and manage crime. We also broke down the figures for all crimes overall - see here. How does your area compare? See below for the top 10 and the full drug offence figures for every area.

The top area for drug offences was Beeston and Holbeck, with the city centre and Gipton and Harehills also high.
