Police made 24 arrests in Redbridge as part of a clampdown on domestic abuse and drug dealing.

More than 100 officers were invloved in the operation yesterday.

Operation Big Wing invloved police executing arrest and search warrants.

It started at Ilford station with a knife detection arch and drug sniffer dogs, which resulted in eight arrests.

Police executed two search warrants at properties suspected of being cannabis factories and made two arrests.

Two cannabis factories were discovered, one in Pedley Road, Goodmayes, and a second in Roding Lane North, Woodford Green.  

More than 4,500 officers led a co-ordinated day of action across the capital.

Domestic abuse offences are up by nearly nine per cent across London, with 37,349 offences recorded between April 1 2013 to 12 January 2014, compared with 34,298 in the same period in 2012/13.

MPS lead for Domestic Abuse, Commander Christine Jones said:

"More than 4,500 officers are out in force targeting suspected perpetrators of domestic abuse, whilst raising awareness about domestic abuse and the help that is available.

"It is also a clear statement from the Met that we will not tolerate domestic abuse and we will not allow it to remain hidden, as is so often the case."

So they set up the Arch that stands out like a sore thumb and the real crooks who are one step ahead of the police walk the other way or cross the road.
Drugs clampdown? Only in the national press today are articles saying that Border Control have been told not to arrest passengers coming into the country with cannabis and amphetamines and so on. As for Domestic abuse, the police need to get their own house in order. They let of a now disgraced former borough commander with 'words of advice' after they taped him abusing his mistress and her mother with threats of violence and wrongdoing'.
