Three men have been arrested on drugs charges after police were met with an unpleasant scene at a London address in which a toilet was found overflowing with what appeared to be cannabis.

Police attended an address in Warrior Square, Manor Park, on Monday where the occupants refused to open the door.

Alerted by a strong smell of cannabis coming through the letterbox, police then forced entry, a Met spokesperson said.

The men were arrested at an address in Warrior Square, Manor Park, on suspicion of possession with an intent to supply a Class B drug, police said.

Pictures taken at the scene and posted online by Newham police show the state of the flooded toilet, overflowing with what appears to be large amounts of cannabis after the occupants had tried unsuccessfully to flush it away.

Detective Inspector Gordon Henderson, from Newham police, said: “The officers involved acted diligently and promptly and I am pleased their actions resulted in three arrests and the seizure of a large quantity of drugs.”
