Other Twitter users have also asked what the seizure of what was believed to be a kilogram of uncut heroin in Catford had to do with this weekend's carnival on the other side of the capital in west London.

The force has been tweeting after carrying out a series of dawn raids on Tuesday, in Lewisham as well as in Kensington and Chelsea, the borough where the world-famous event takes place.

But its tweet about the heroin seizure in Catford led Stormzy to reply:"How many drugs did you lot seize in the run up to Glastonbury or we only doing tweets like this for black events?"
