Two more charged with drugs offences after police raids

Two more people have been charged with drug offences after a major drugs operation in Essex and east London.

The man and woman were charged by Essex Police following a raid at a property Ilford on Monday. They are due before Colchester magistrates later.

Twenty-two people were arrested and charged with drug offences last week following early-morning raids in Colchester and London.

They were remanded in custody to appear at Chelmsford Crown Court in November.

The 22 were arrested on Thursday as part of the operation by Essex Police, following early-morning raids in Colchester and east London.

Essex Police said the operation had been the biggest of its kind this year.
