22 people have been arrested in Ealing and drugs seized as part of a major crackdown on crime in the Capital.

There was police activity across all 32 boroughs this week during Operation Blunt 2, which tackles knife crime.

More than 200 suspected gang members were taken in for questioning. A firearm was seized in Westminster and three dangerous dogs were seized in Lambeth, Tower Hamlets and Ealing.

During the week Ealing Broadway Station was the venue for a knife arch and passive drugs dog.

Ealing Police served 17 warrants in relation to drugs, and made 22 arrests with class A and class B drugs being recovered.

There were anti drugs talks and information stalls at a number of the boroughs secondary schools and talks were given to year 6 pupils in some primary schools; these activities were all supported by the Safer Neighbourhood Teams.

DI Sarah Pearce from Offender Management Unit in Ealing said:
‘’We will continue to respond to the concerns of our community and work with our partners to address the considerable harm caused by drugs. This week has seen robust enforcement to tackle drug supply coupled with education of our young people to prevent the use of drugs.’’

National Tackling Drug Week aims to provide communities with a deeper insight into what their neighbourhood policing teams are doing on a daily basis to tackle drugs and reduce drug related crime
