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.
