Officers from Islington police’s Safer Neighbourhoods Taskforce arrested the group after seizing around one kilogram of the drug during a raid on a flat in Sparsholt Road, Upper Holloway, on December 15.

Inspector Michael Cowie, of the Safer Neighbourhoods Taskforce, said: “Islington Police will not tolerate criminality and the Safer Neighbourhoods Taskforce is committed to disrupting serious crime by organising operations like this to take drugs off our streets.”
