Footage has been released of an industrial-scale laboratory believed to have been producing large quantities of amphetamine uncovered this week as part of a National Crime Agency (NCA) investigation.

Five people have been arrested, including two men in Chalfont St Giles, after NCA investigators, supported by officers from Warwickshire Police, raided farm buildings in Ullenhall Lane, near Redditch, on Tuesday (April 27).

The men, aged 40 and 60, were arrested in Chalfont St Giles as part of the inquiry into an organised crime group believed to be running the drugs operation using the encrypted phone network EncroChat.


A 26-year-old man and a woman aged 28 were also arrested during the raid, as was a 50-year-old man from Quinton, Birmingham, suspected of operating the lab.

All five are still in custody being interviewed.

The NCA, which released the footage and pictures, said it believes a crime group was producing around one tonne of amphetamine per month, worth £2 million wholesale and up to £10 million at street level, for distribution to criminals throughout the country.
