A 50 year-old man has been jailed for six years for supplying almost a kilogram of high-quality cocaine. Lithuanian Saulius Pilipavicius was arrested as he exchanged a bag of the drug with another man in Leytonstone in April.
Detective Inspector Rob Murray said: "We believe that Pilipavicius came to this country to sell significant quantities of Class A drugs on London streets. In this case, he attempted to exchange almost one kilogram of cocaine, which has a street value of £200,000.
"We welcome today's sentence which has ensured that a drugs supplier - part of an international drugs supply chain - has been removed from our streets."
A group of residents from Leytonstone have lost their High Court battle to prevent surface-to-air missiles being stationed on the roof of a 17-storey residential tower block during the Olympics.
Tenants of Fred Wigg Tower in Leytonstone feared the missile base could trigger a terrorist attack. The residents were applying for permission to seek a judicial review on the grounds they were not consulted fairly and properly over the proposal.
But, the MOD had argued that there is no other suitable site to place the missiles and that the temporary base is essential for public safety and national security.
