Police stormed a storage facility in Belvedere yesterday as they cracked down on an organised crime group believed to have committed a series of high-value burglaries.

A number of expensive goods believed to be stolen property were found in the raid, along with cars and caravans, which were seized.

Met officers also executed warrants at residential addresses in Hackney and Kent, where a 39-year-old make was arrested on suspicion to commit burglary.

The group is believed to be responsible for 20 burglaries in London alone and more than 50 across the UK in total.

In Suffolk, Met officers supported local police in conducting warrants at a caravan park near Mildenhall, where six arrests were made of men aged from 19 to 25.

Detective Superintendent Andy Furphy of the Met’s South East Command said: “We understand the devastation that can be caused to those who are unfortunate enough to the targeted by burglars and the often long term effects that can run far deeper than a loss of property."
