Police raid address in Brent as part of Operation Razorback
Trident officers target gang members in the run up to the Notting Hill Carnival
Police raided an address in Brent this morning (Tuesday) in a clampdown on gang members planning to create havoc at the Notting Hill Carnival.
Officers stormed the property in Willesden as part of Operation Razorback targeting suspects before the two-day event kicks off this weekend.
No arrests were made this morning as the suspect was not at the address.
This year Razorback is running alongside the Met’s Trident Gang Crime Command, set up to clampdown on criminal gangs in the city.

Commander Bob Broadhurst, who is in charge of the policing operation for this year’s Carnival, said: “Across London we’ll use specialist officers and technology to make it as hard as possible for those people identified through intelligence to travel about.
“At entry points to Carnival we’ll make use of intelligence-led stop and search, our status dogs unit and screening wands to scan people for concealed weapons.”
