A man was arrested by police after being caught brazenly selling drugs in the street on Enfield Council's CCTV camera.

Operators spotted the suspected drug dealer in action in Galahad and Bedever Roads in Edmonton at 5.36pm on 21 June and directed police officers to his location, where he was arrested and later charged for possession of a class B drug.

Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Community Safety & Public Health, Cllr Krystle Fonyonga, said: "The message we have for criminals is simple, if you break the law on our streets, we will see you, we will track you down and we will help the police to arrest you. There is no hiding place and there is no doubt that we will catch you and make an example of you.

"We will not tolerate crime in Enfield and we will continue to work with the police to keep this borough safe and ensure that crime levels drop across the borough."

Enfield Police Temporary borough commander Supt Carl Robinson, said: "When you sell drugs you can expect to be arrested and locked up as CCTV provides excellent evidence. I'm delighted the individual in question decided to make our job as easy as he did, and grateful, as ever to Enfield Council's CCTV operators for their invaluable assistance in helping to remove another criminal from the streets on Enfield."
