Police cadets have seized weapons and drugs in a borough-wide operation.

The teenagers accompanying Waltham Forest Police also recovered a set of stolen license plates when they searched areas across the borough identified by local police as places suffering from anti-social behaviour.

They also dropped leaflets containing crime prevention advice.

I am eagerly awaiting further information on this.

How old are these cadets?

What contingencies were in place to safeguard them from danger?

They look like they are gardening in the photo.

Let me offer possible answers your questions, the article describes the cadets as teenagers which would suggest their ages are between 13 & 18, it also states they were accompanying waltham forest police which might suggest any risk to their safety had been assessed and that measures were put in place to safeguard them from danger.

On a positive note well done to all those involved, the recovery of drugs & firearms has proved this exercise to be a success

Well done to the young cadets.

Risk assessment is always done and they are never alone.

If some are only 13, they are not legally allowed to handle a firearm.

There you go again jumping to conclusions, where in the article does it say that a 13 year old handled firearms?

It didn't, you suggested their ages, the Guardian are still awaiting the information on the weapons, I am making an observation.

Calm down, relax, ease up, do not get worked up over trivia.
