Police stormed a property in north Watford in the early hours of yesterday morning as part of an operation targeting the sale of phoney medicines.

Metropolitan Police officers from the London Regional Asset Recovery Team (LRART) searched the address in Cecil Street at 6am.

Detectives investigating the sale of millions of life-threatening fake medicines to victims across the world also targeted four properties in Hackney, one in Haringey and another in Barnet.

No arrests were made at the Watford address. A 62-year-old man from Hackney and a 34-year-old man from Barnet were arrested on suspicion of money laundering, fraud and supplying misleading/false information and have been released on bail.
