POLICE have made an arrest after finding a stash of drugs and weapons in a house.

Officers found knives and a baton inside the property in Canvey Island during a raid yesterday.

Essex Police's Operational Support Group team had been executing a warrant along with the help of the Castle Point and Rochford community policing teams.

They have since tweeted to confirm one person was arrested during the raid, and two more people are being interviewed in connection with the incident.
