Five men and a woman were arrested as part of a London wide crackdown

Five men and a woman have been arrested after trying to flee from police during a raid.

Police swooped on a home in Clifford Gardens, Kensal Rise, as part of Operation Target, a London wide crackdown on crime against people and property.

As officers entered the home, several men attempted to escape out of the back door.

They fled to neighbouring gardens where they were detained and arrested by officers.

Large amounts of cannabis and drugs paraphernalia including self seal bags, cash and electronic scales, were found in the gardens and house following a search.
