A major police operation to crack down on unruly behaviour has been hailed a success by senior officers.
Last Tuesday more than 70 police took part in the operation organised alongside Liquid nightclub, which was holding an under-18s school disco.
A knife detection screening arch was set up outside the Civic Centre in Uxbridge High Street from 6pm, and officers screened 170 people.
Five people were arrested in the operation for a number of offences, including one for drink driving.
Officers worked in freezing conditions caused by falling snow all around Uxbridge town centre, and along the 427 bus route.
Maurice Hartnett, superintendent of Hillingdon Police, said: "There were no specific incidents which would have caused us great concern.
"The overall policing operation was a success, with 170 people going through the screening arch and a further 100 being stopped and searched.
"We also had plain clothes policeman acting as spotters looking out for people who might peel off when they saw the screening arch and try to avoid it.
"From here we will have a debrief and see what further needs to be done in terms of future operations."
