TWO men were arrested after police found a rucksack stuffed with drugs and cash while talking to youngsters at a Totton skatepark.

Officers were patrolling the Ashurst Bridge Road area when a man approached at Bartley Park around 5.20pm yesterday (Thursday).

He aroused their suspicions by placing a small bag among a number of rucksacks on the ground near the group of youngsters.
