Four men have been arrested in a series of early morning raids targeting criminal groups in south England.

Officers executed 10 simultaneous raids at properties in Slough, Maidenhead and London.

Three men aged 26, 31 and 38 from Slough and a 40-year-old man from London have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit money laundering.

They are all currently in custody being questioned by detectives.

Det Sgt Rob Hood said: "By its very nature, crime such as this can be difficult to detect and this is an ongoing complex investigation".
