Drug warrants were issues in two West Ealing properties following complaints from members of the public.

On Tuesday (September 5), warrants were obtained for homes in Northfield Avenue and Westfield Road after members of the public complained about alleged drug dealing and drug usage within them.

Police Constable Vik Jhurree, of Met Police's Safer Neighbourhood Team, said they had received a number of complaints from local residents about the properties.

“As a result of numerous complaints and local intelligence provided by members of the public of drug dealing and drug taking in the area, Local Police carried out in depth research in order to combat the local issues addressed," he said.
