A sub-machine gun and 70 rounds of ammunition were seized by police during a firearms raid in Mitcham.

Officers recovered the Scorpion sub-machine gun and bullets after executing a firearms warrant at a house in Commonside East at approximately 11.50pm on Friday night.

Nine people were arrested on the property, includng six men and three women aged between 18 and 54.

Police used a Taser on one woman during the raid and she was taken to hospital but has now been discharged, arrested and is in custody at a south London police station.

Officers also discovered two magazine clips, £3,000 in cash and a large quantity of cannabis at the house.

All nine have been arrested on suspicion of firearms and drugs offences and remanded in custody.

Detective Superintendent Damian Allain of Trident Gang Crime Command, which investigates gun related crime in the capital, said: "This is an extremely dangerous weapon capable of shooting 850 rounds a minute.

“In the wrong hands this firearm is deadly and is now safely off the streets of the capital.”

Err, what is racist about my comment? Oh of course I forgot, white Anglo Saxon Protestants, especially those who own their own houses, are automatically classified as racist by the non working class immigrants in our society. Oh well, as I'm born racist might as well enjoy it........

It is so pleasing to see my comments on how this country has been turned into a third world shitehole by immigrants provoke the expected reaction from the usual suspects. I just wish it were the other way around and I could afford to "leave London behind" but I'm so broke paying for foreign aid to poxy Africa I can't afford to by a country pile. Perhaps I should take to the hills with a gun like the Americans do, we might even manage to take our country back.........

I refer you to my previous post. All white people are automatically born racists according to black people. I do not consider it racist simply because a person does not like (for instance) Africans. This country, unlike some, used to have freedom of speech and expression.That is being eroded by stupid political correctness. IF we allow it to be........
