Up to 20 police smashed their way into a house in Wisbech and arrested a man and his girlfriend on suspicion of drug dealing.  

The raid took place at 8.30am on January 4 at a basement flat in St Augustine’s Road.  

One neighbour said: “We heard a loud banging noise and looked out to see a swarm of police battering down a door to get into the flat”.

Both of those arrested spent the night in custody and are appearing before Peterborough magistrates today. 

Christian Grange, 46, and Aimee Cullen, 31, both of St Augustine’s Road, have been charged with possession with intent to supply class A (cocaine), class B (cannabis) and class C (diazepam) drugs. 

The eyewitness to the raid said some of the police officers went into the house, others to the basement.
