Two people in west London were among those arrested as part of an investigation into an alleged criminal money laundering network.

Raids took place at properties in Harrow and Teddington, as well as in Weybridge and Epsom in Surrey.

The probe started after UK Border Force officers at St Pancras International railway station seized around £300,000 in cash from a passenger in September 2011.

In addition officers have carried out searches at a business addresses in Hampton Hill and London Docklands.

In total four people have been arrested. The three men aged 63, 38 and 45 and a woman aged 33, are currently being questioned.
