Three men were arrested and a quantity of what is believed to be cannabis recovered after officers forced entry at an address in Manor Park.

Officers from East Ham South and Wall End Safer Neighbourhoods Team attended an address in Warrior Square on Monday, 27 April at around 20:00hrs.

The occupants refused to open the door, and the officers, alerted by a strong smell of cannabis coming through the letterbox, forced entry.

The occupants had apparently tried to unsuccessfully flush a large quantity of cannabis down the toilet. Electronic scales were also recovered from the address.

Detective Inspector Gordon Henderson, from Newham police, said: "The officers involved acted diligently and promptly and I am pleased their actions resulted in three arrests and the seizure of a large quantity of drugs."

Three men [A - 29 years, B - 30 years and C - 30 years) were arrested for possession with intent to supply a class B drug and later bailed to return to an east London police station on dates in mid-July pending further enquiries.
