A total of five people in Enfield have been charged with crimes following a day of police raids.

Police used warrants to arrest 14 people in the borough on Wednesday, February 27 under the city-wide Operation Big Wing.

Of the arrests, suspects were charged with burglary, handling stolen goods, theft, drugs obstruction and aggravated vehicle taking.

Seven people were bailed following further investigations and no further action was taken against one individual.

More than 600 people were arrested throughout the city during the operation, with 140 people being charged to date.

Assistant commissioner of the met police, Simon Byrne, said: "Big Wing means we can choose the time, the place and the scale at which we mobilise the Met to put criminals on the back foot.

"Six-hundred arrests in a single day is a great effort in terms of protecting Londoners."
