Police officers were conducting vehicle checkpoints in the city when they made the arrests.

"At our last point and just before terminating duty we got a Ronaldo style hatrick [sic]," said the PSNI on social media.

"One car, three arrests (back of the net). Considering there were four people travelling in this car it's not too bad."

The PSNI added: "Two of the males were in possession of Class B Controlled Drugs and unfortunately for them had money warrants currently outstanding.

"The third male was arrested on suspicion driving whilst unfit through drink or drugs."
