A laundrette that was among several businesses and homes stormed by police in co-ordinated drug raids has been told it must shut for at least three months.

The Metropolitan Police applied for eight closure orders after police swooped on the businesses and homes near Park Parade in Harlesden on August 23.

Officers arrested 12 people on suspicion of offences including stolen goods and possession with intent to supply Class A, B and C drugs – while the Met says “quantities of drugs and stolen property” were recovered.
