A man and woman have been arrested after officers discovered a cannabis factory and significant amounts of what is believed to be MDMA and crystal meth.

Police executed a warrant last Thursday morning at an address in Park lane, Hornchurch.

A male and female in their 20’s were arrested and bailed until December pending analysis of the drugs.

Pc Rosie Bennett, of Havering Police, said: “This was a significant haul and we are pleased to have disrupted the distribution of these drugs before they hit the streets of Havering.”
