Fourteen people were arrested in Enfield during a London-wide police operation.

Under Operation Big Wing, officers targeted suspects throughout the borough on Wednesday using warrants.

They also carried out 120 stop and searches, seized four cars and handed out 23 fixed penalty notices.

Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Bernard Hogan-Howe, said the day of action should “send a clear message” to criminals that police officers and staff are working to catch them.

He added: “The met has an array of specialist experts as well as professional local officers who work daily to keep Londoners safe.

“This Big Wing operation brings them visibly together and the public should see them working to cut crime."

A total of 343 people were arrested throughout the city during the operation.

'Arrested' and 'charged' are 2 seperate stages. A person can be arrested but not charged. How many of the 14 were charged with an offence or was the 14 figure pumped up / inflated to make the people in charge look like they are doing a 'great' job?
