Drugs found in Home Of­fice

The Herald - - NEWS -

PO­LICE were called af­ter drugs were found in­side the Home Of­fice’s Lon­don head­quar­ters, the depart­ment has con­firmed.

A “small quan­tity” of sus­pected class A drugs were dis­cov­ered in a com­mu­nal area – a dis­abled toi­let – at the of­fice on Mar­sham Street, West­min­ster, on May 3.

The drugs were be­lieved to be crys­tal meth.

A spokesman for the Home Of­fice said po­lice had been called by se­cu­rity staff, who dis­cov­ered the dis­carded drugs. Of­fi­cers re­moved the sub­stance.

He added: “We take in­ci­dents of this na­ture ex­tremely se­ri­ously, al­ways en­sure that proper pro­ce­dures are fol­lowed and take ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tion based on ad­vice.”
