Five men have been released on bail following a police raid on a property suspected of being a hub for drug-dealing.

Brent Police supported by the Territorial Support Group stormed into the property on Shirland Road, Queen's Park, on Tuesday after receiving a string of complaints from concerned residents.

A man aged 27, 34 and 47, and two 28-year-olds were arrested for possession of cannabis with intent to supply and have been bailed to return to a police station at a later date.

PC Alex Wright from Brent Firearms and Drugs Unit said: "The intention of the operation was to arrest those who are involved in a drug related criminal activity.

"We hope the arrests demonstrate that with the help and support of the community we can take action against those who believe they are above the law.
