Redbridge officers were out on the streets on Thursday for Operation Big Wing, which takes place each month.

Three warrants were executed under the drugs act and the theft act, a cash seizure of £2,300 was enforced and two cannabis warnings were made by the Redbridge community police team.

Officers also attended Ilford station, Cranbrook Road, with police dogs, arresting one person and giving another a cannabis warning.
