SQUATTERS have been evicted from a council house after a police drugs raid in London's East End.

Cops searching the house at Diss Street in Bethnal Green found the place littered with drug paraphernalia. But no drugs were found.

They went in with a warrant, accompanied by a court bailiff and a representative from Tower Hamlets Homes, after neighbours complained.

Squatters found living there last Wednesday quit the property after being served eviction orders.
