Brent Police have raided 10 addresses and made five arrests so far as part of a Met clampdown on ‘low-level’ crime in the community today.

Operation Big Wing is targeting people suspected of being behind crime and disorder blighting neighbourhoods in all 32 London boroughs.

A family home in Kilburn was the first to be raided in Brent with officers going on to carry out further execution warrants resulting in more arrests and the seizure of a suspected dangerous dog.

Further raids and police action will be carried out in the borough throughout the day.

It’s also about warning those intent on breaking the law and engaging in criminal activity that we will be doing everything we can to stop them, and wherever possible we will be putting them before the courts.”

Police will also be holding street briefings and police surgeries to inform the public on today’s activities.
