Mother and son caged for shotgun
Drugs and ammunition found in police swoop on Stamford Hill house

Cocaine, cannabis and a disassembled handgun were also found in the Hillside Road home of Violet Allen, 55, and Tyrone Russell-Allen, 18, during a police raid in March this year.
As officers entered the home, Allen directed them to a rucksack in her bedroom in which a sawn-off shotgun, ten live .44 and .45 calibre bullets, and a disassembled handgun were found.
During the search police also found 700g of Cocaine, 2g of Heroin and 10g of Cannabis.
