COPS have closed down a crack house in London’s East End where they found heroin, cocaine and drugs paraphernalia.
It follows months of complaints from neighbours who weren’t getting much sleep.
Police got a three-month closure order from Thames magistrates after raiding the flat at Gosling House in Shadwell.
“We are elated with this result,” said one happy neighbour after the flat was busted.
“We are now having days and nights without being disturbed and long-awaited peace and quiet.”

Police went with a warrant under the 1971 Misuse of drugs Act last Friday. The flat has now been boarded up by Tower Hamlets council.
Pol Sgt Jim Jones said: “This is our commitment to combat drugs in the East End.
“We have been taking action to deal with the issues affecting the Shadwell neighbourhood and are here to listen to families’ concerns about crime and anti social behaviour.”
The property has been causing serious nuisance to families for six months, police said.
