Three people including a teenage girl were arrested over possession of a gun and Class A drugs during a dramatic police raid in Chessington yesterday (November 13).

Police said they attended a property on Mount Road in Chessington early on Wednesday morning (November 13), around 7.20am.

Two of the three people inside the property at the time were arrested for obstructing police among a host of other reasons.
