Police have swooped in a planned operation this evening.

Officers moved in along Dagenham Road, Romford, with reports on social media claiming as many as ten emergency vehicles were involved, with police cars also forming road blocks and the police helicopter providing assistance.

Claims the sting took place at betting shop William Hill are unconfirmed at this stage.

A Met spokesman said the expectation was that arrests would be made following the operation which began around 6pm.
