Twenty people from Kent and three from London have been charged with drug-dealing offences after police raided 20 properties over three days.

More than 100 officers carried out the raids over three days last week, seizing cars, cash and suspected crack cocaine and heroin.

A 17-year-old from Gravesend, 19 people from Dover and Deal and three from Bow and Forest Gate have been charged.

Kent Police said they were due before Canterbury Crown Court on 12 June.

All the charges relate to the supply of Class A drugs.

Three more people who were arrested have been bailed pending further police inquiries.
