Tenants have been permanently evicted from a flat after cocaine, MDMA and cannabis were found at the property.

Police twice raided the address in Isledon Court, Williamson Stret, Holloway, and found drugs on both occasions.

During the first search in search in September they found significant quantities on class A drugs – cocaine and MDMA – plus cannabis and arrested two men.

The second swoop on November turned up a small amount of cannabis and a woman and a man were arrested.

Last month Circle 33 housing, which owns the property, got a possession order and have now permanently evicted the tenants.

Pc David Wright from the Neighbourhood Support Team said: “I am pleased that this address has been closed down and the tenants who caused misery to law abiding residents have now been permanently evicted. I hope this will encourage other residents to report drug related activity in their neighbourhood so that we can take action“.
