Sgt Nicholas Clarke, of the Camden Town Safer Neighbourhoods team, said the raid followed a tip-off from residents on the estate, which is near to the Castlehaven open space.

He later tweeted pictures of the operation which took place on September 3.

Two people have been charged with two counts of possessing class A drugs, three counts of theft and a charge of failing to appear in court.
