A raid on a Bromley flat uncovered Class A drugs and suspected stolen goods this morning as officers target criminals in a day of action labelled Operation Big Wing.

Cash and drug paraphernalia, including scales, were also found at the flat in Beckenham Lane leading to arrest of a woman at the scene - click to the right of your screen for our gallery of the raid.

The operation is designed to target people who cause the most harm to London’s communities.

Borough officers will be joined by specialist colleagues to carry out arrests, search warrants, licensing enforcement and high visibility patrols.

There will also be street briefings and police surgeries across the capital’s 32 boroughs to inform people on what is being done to tackle crime.

Ch Insp Andy Furphy, from Bromley Police, said: “Violence and drugs are serious, high harm crimes that can sadly have a devastating and lasting effect on local communities.

“However, there are also many other issues which might be seen as ‘lower level’ offences, such as anti-social behaviour or uninsured drivers, that we know can and do blight the daily lives of too many people.

“Today’s operation is about showing residents that we have listened to their concerns and we are committed to taking robust preventative and disruptive action to stop this criminal activity and make their communities safer.”
