One man and six women, aged between 20 and 35, have been arrested and taken into custody after searches of addresses in North Circular Road, Cromwell Road and Southern Row on Monday, 22 February.

They were arrested on suspicion of drugs supply offences, firearms offences and possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.
