18 Charged After Soho Drug Crackdown

Police have arrested key suspects overnight as part of a crackdown on heroin and cocaine dealers in the west end ahead of the Olympics.

18 people have been charged following an undercover operation targeting street dealers in Soho.

Scotland Yard says more arrests are expected soon as more searches are carried out.

The four women and 14 men are charged with drugs offences including conspiracy to suplly Class A drugs.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Stephen Kavanagh said:

"This is the latest part of Operation Trafalgar, which is now entering a stronger enforcement phase, in addition to the increased patrols and visibility seen since the initiative was launched in March.

"Drug dealing on the streets of the West End or in any part of London can not and will not be tolerated."
