Partnership Task Force officers forced entry to the property in Saxon Road and found a quantity of the class B drug in the living room.

Upon searching the suspended plasterboard ceiling, they discovered a large haul of cannabis as well as suspected class A drugs.

Police arrested a man aged 30 on suspicion of being involved in the supply of controlled drugs.

Borough Commander Dave Stringer said: “This is another excellent example of how officers from the Partnership Task Force within Tower Hamlets act quickly and robustly to deal with drug dealing and drug misuse.
