A number of weapons and what appears to be cannabis have been found in a police drugs raid.

A team of officers executed the raid at a house in Basildon.

A spokesman from the Essex Police Operations Support Team tweeted: "Ongoing proactive work.

"Warrant in Basildon. "Entry gained with the red key. "Didn’t open but the frame did....with door still attached!

"Items found included some that you have to consider the worth of having even in your own home."

Thanks was also given to police dog Orla for assisting in the operation.

It is not clear if anyone has been arrested.

Essex Police has been contacted for comment.
