A suspected drug dealer handed police a gift after leaving a bag of narcotics on a tram – along with his full name and address.

Greater Manchester Police Trafford North shared an image of the bag and various illegal drugs, with the words: “Deal or No Deal?”

The force continued: “Police appeal to reunite lost property with its owner. A poor individual has forgotten his rucksack while travelling on the tram on the Bury line.”
