Eleven people were arrested in the raid on the club in Brixton
Three men are due to appear in court after a huge police raid on alleged drug dealing at a south London nightclub on Saturday.

It follows the arrest of 11 people at The Fridge club in Brixton at the end of a two-month intelligence operation.

Police seized drugs thought to include cocaine and ecstasy, as well as cash.

The men aged 24, 26 and 29 are expected to appear before Tower Bridge magistrates charged with the supply of Class A drugs.

Operation Atuna

Daniel Wisdom, 26, of Thamesmead, London, is accused of 11 counts of supplying.

Robert Johnson, aged 29, a painter, of Vaughan Road, Harrow, is charged with eight counts of supply and two counts of possession with intent to supply.

Renald Malasi, 24, a labourer, of Greenslade Road, Barking, is charged with eight counts of supplying.

Two women and a man have been bailed to return to a south London police station.

Another five people arrested on suspicion of possession of Class A substances have also been bailed.

About 200 officers were involved in the raid, codenamed Atuna.
