Criminals who have been openly selling drugs on Newham’s streets were targeted in a raid by police this afternoon.

A number of warrants were executed at addresses in Plashet Road in response to reports of drug dealing by members of the public.

Supt Jenny Barnett said: “The borough remains committed to working in partnership with residents, local businesses, the council and other partners, to ensure that the lives of the community are not blighted by those individuals who intend to use our area to carry out criminal activity.

“We will not tolerate this in Newham.”
