People will be banned from entering four premises in Harlesden until next year after alleged antisocial behaviour and drug dealing in the area.

On November 15, the Metropolitan Police secured an extension to closure orders put in place after a mass drug raid on eight businesses and homes near Park Parade in August.

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

Sefar Café and El Tacos will now not be allowed to open until February 23, 2024.

The court also approved a further closure for Fortune Launderette & Dry Cleaning, in Park Parade, until March 4.

Baraca Hands hair salon, in Harlesden High Street will remain shut until March 7.

Not everyone is banned from entering the four premises: emergency services, maintenance and repair workers, people accompanied by police, council and utility service officials, or official letting agency staff can still go in.

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson previously told the Brent & Kilburn Times: “Any person found in these premises within these times who is not part of the excepted parties above commits an offence under section 86 of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.

“They (the orders) have been sought due to ASB [anti-social behaviour] caused by drug dealing, consumption and the peripheral crime associated with such.”

Police said that 11 males and one female were arrested following the raids in August.

One person was charged with robbery and possession of crack cocaine and another person was charged with possession of Class B drugs and recalled to prison.

He has been released under investigation in respect of allegedly handling stolen goods.

Police previously said the raids are "far from the end of the operation".
