Police and Environmental Enforcement Officers from Thurrock Council will remain on site to search more than 80 shipping containers.
“We work very closely with our partners to build an informed picture of what’s believed to be going on in our local area,” said Chief Inspector Richard Melton, District Commander for Thurrock.
“That’s why warrants like today are important – without reports from members of the public, our officers may not be able to act. Thank you for trusting us.”
