Armed police brought Camden High Street to a standstill this evening as part of a "pre-planned" operation to arrest a suspected drug dealer.

A number of armed cops helped colleagues detain the individual in a white Toyota Prius - who has now been taken to a south London police station.

A Scotland Yard spokesperson said: "At approximately 17:50hrs on Monday, 12 August, officers including firearms officers, carried out a pre-planned operation on Camden High Street.

The police did not release any further details of the man in question.

The road has since been re-opened.

The spokesperson added: "Enquiries continue. We are not prepared to comment further due to ongoing operational reasons."
