PC Simone Carruthers, Newcastle West Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: "Operations such as this are vital in helping us disrupt suspected criminal activity and in gathering information about those involved in crime."
Hounslow's deputy council leader Amrit Mann said: "We have called for a comprehensive health assessment on the impact of Heathrow but unfortunately it has fallen on deaf ears so far."

That’s why we have designed an ambitious new scheme to build affordable homes at the fastest rate for 20 years, which will support 165,000 jobs in construction and sustain thousands of small businesses."
