Police raided the homes of suspected gang members this morning.

A total of 120 officers from Waltham Forest police and the Met’s Trident team made arrests at several properties in Walthamstow and Chingford at about 6am in a crackdown on drug and violent crime.

The Priory Court gang and the Chingford Hall gang, thought to be working together recently, were the targets of the raids, made after similar action near Walthamstow Central tube station yesterday.
