Two teenagers and a man in his forties have been arrested following a police drugs bust.

Officers searched an address in Edward Street, Canning Town, on Tuesday at 6.30am.

On entering the premises, a large quantity of Class A drugs were seen to be thrown from a bedroom window.

These and further drugs found inside the premises were seized as evidence.

Three men, a 17-year-old, a 19-year-old, and a 43-year-old, were arrested in connection with the investigation.

They were later bailed and are due to return to an east London police station in November.

The Newham Gangs & Firearms Unit lead the raid as part of an ongoing police investigation into gang-related drug activities.

Enquiries continue.
