Trident officers search Manor Park flat after shooting
POLICE swooped on a Manor Park flat this morning in connection with shooting in Seven Kings.
Officers from the Met’s Operation Trident Team, which deals with gun crime, broke down the door of a home in High Street North.
An eyewitness told the Recorder: “We heard the door being bashed in at around 9am. I didn’t have a clue what was going on.”
Forensic officers spent the rest of the morning searching the inside of around 50 tyres at the shop next door and scouring the flat for clues.
The corner of High Street North and Berkeley Road were cordoned off as the officers with protective overalls did their work.
