Inspector Bryan Reilly, who lead the operation, said:“This operation was to target the people causing nuisance and harassment to the local community and respond to fears of the control and management of prostitution.
“It is not acceptable for law abiding residents to suffer the effects of having this type of activity taking place in their community and this is an excellent example of the Safer Neighbourhoods Team working closely with residents to ensure that Brent remains a safe and pleasant environment for the whole community.”
