Police arrested people on suspicion of burglary, soliciting and drug offences in a crackdown on crime hotspots.

Officers made 13 arrests were made on Thursday, January 16, using intelligence from trading standards, Enfield homes, local faith and community groups to target crime hotspots.

These included four drug-related arrests, two linked to burglary and one person wanted for sexual offences.

Two people were also arrested for assault among others for theft, soliciting, assisting an offender and public order offences.

Detective Inspector Greg Coates said: "The results achieved and the sheer volume and variety of activity that took place - with 30 separate activities taking place in Upper Edmonton - demonstrate the commitment of the partnership to Operation Hammerhead, tackling crime and anti-social behaviour in Upper Edmonton and I would like to thank everybody involved.
