17 arrested after co-ordinated west London drug raids

More than 200 officers were involved in dawn raids in west London this morning after complaints from residents about suspected drug dealing. Co-ordinated raids took place at 20 properties in Hillingdon. 17 people were arrested for allegedly supplying Class A drugs.

Today's results are the culmination of a meticulously planned operation highlighting the commitment of officers in targeting drug dealing and anti-social behaviour which is adversely affecting the lives of law-abiding residents in Hillingdon.

Their actions have a huge impact on our community as a whole and this operation has stopped them in their tracks.
