Drugs worth around £300,000 that police believe were destined to be sold at the Notting Hill Carnival have been seized during a raid at an address in Lewisham.
At about 10.30am yesterday, officers involved in the Notting Hill Carnival policing operation raided a flat in Broadfield Road.
In the basement, officers found a suitcase containing what is suspected to be 3-4kg of crack cocaine.
Four people - a man and a woman aged in their mid 30s, second man aged 19 and a third man aged 51 - were arrested at the address on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of drugs.
All four are currently in custody.
