A hundred police raid Southend nightclub
A HUNDRED police officers have raided a Southend nightclub in a hunt for drugs.
They stormed Mayhem, in Warrior Square, and switched on the lights before clearing all clubbers out.
They had to pass through police sniffer dogs on their way out, before the mounted unit helped disperse the crowd.
Officers had searched 20 people by 1am but no arrests had been made and no drugs seized.
Search teams were then sent into the club to see if any drugs were inside.
The operation involved nine police carriers, at least nine marked cars, and officers on motorbikes.
The Echo attended the operation following a briefing at Southend police station.
