Around 40 officers from the Metropolitan Police Service’s specialist Kidnap Squad raided a council estate in Bow earlier this month in an attempt to secure the release of a man being held captive by a gang of abductors. Some of the officers were armed with machine guns and used explosives to gain entry into the building.
